Our current documentary explores the lives of individuals from different
parts of the world using music for wildly unorthodox investigations.
Artists such as Miya Masaoka, a Japanese koto player using music to
interact with plants and insects; Jon Rose, the world’s first
virtuoso fence player, who has traveled the world to make music
from fences in conflict zones ranging from the Australian outback
to Israel; John Luther Adams, an ecologist using music to study
weather patterns, earthquakes, and activity of the aurora borealis
in Alaska; and Bob Ostertag, who explores socio-political issues
through processes as diverse as transcribing riots into string
quartets, and creating live cinema with garbage.
