Live performances to silent classic The Passion Of Joan Of Arc (1928), considered a landmark of cinema, especially for its stylistic visual production, Dreyer’s unique direction and Falconettis captivating acting.
The film is renowned for its spectacular set design and art direction – of which there are only brief glances in the film – but most famous for it’s focus on natural faces and emotional reactions, edited in such elegant speed and flow as rivalling most modern music videos.
The music for Joan Of Arc uses contemporary film soundtrack scoring and musical sound design to weave a sonic texture that both contrasts and compliments the aesthetics of the images. The score utilises heavily manipulated and processed recordings of Middle-Age religious music, live electronic processing of an acoustic violin and modern digital micro-sound structures.
