Techno overlord Richie Hawtin has created an alternative score for Dimitri Kirsanoff’s Brumes d’automne, a French silent film from 1928.
Hawtin’s score will premiere at Centre Pompidou in Paris on September 19. The project was commissioned by Bertrand Bonello, who has this to say about it:
“Twelve minutes in black and white, dating from 1928. Some leaves in the sky, reflections in the water of a lake, a letter burning in a fireplace, a few drops of rain, Nadia Sibirskaya’s eyes full of tears. This film is a breathtaking beauty, an emotion that few words can explain. The original music is by Paul Devred. What would we see differently if the music was different?”
As well as Hawtin, Diana Soh and Bonello himself contribute alternative scores to the event. For more information, head to the Centre Pompidou’s website.
