The Window of Dreams (2018) by Cendrine Robelin
Humans make music; humans make music with machines: concrete music. Today Bernard Parmegiani is in his twilight years as a composer. With his old time friend and composer Beatriz Ferreyra at his side, he searches through his private archives and listens with emotion. In The Window of Dreams, Bernard goes to meet composers from younger generations, Michel Chion and Lionel Marchetti. Although they belong to different generations, all these musicians entertain a peculiar relationship with their sound machines, somewhere between body to body contact, fusion and repulsion. From one encounter to the next we enter sound material with them, exploring the invisible in the backstage of creation, tracking taped memory.
