Electro-Acoustic Vertov

The Eleventh Year evening initially programmed on March 20, 2020 , was postponed because of the Covid-19 pandemy. We had the great pleasure to transform the initially planned 3-day event into a week-long residency at the Logelloù Artistic Center. With Nicolas Sidoroff (trumpet, objects) and Krystian Sarrau (tenor sax, modular synthesizer), we worked and composed together a new soundtrack to two newsreels by Dziga Vertov : Kino-Pravda No 5 and No 6. Krystian Sarrau, with Vertov's Kino-Pravda No 19 on the screen, picture by Philippe Ollivier The Kino-Pravda series consists in a set of 23 newsreels authored by Dziga Vertov between 1922 and 1925.
