When There Is No More Music To Write, and other Roman Stories - Rewire
Eric Baudelaire’s triplet of short experimental films evokes the figure of avant-garde composer Alvin Curran, his relationship with Rome – where he settled in the mid-1960s – and the music he created there, mainly within the famous Musica Elettronica Viva collective. Instead of filming the renowned composer, Baudelaire draws upon his thoughts and sounds, creating a kaleidoscopic, intertextual approach to this artist’s work and legacy. Baudelaire also explores Curran’s creative process with collaborators, including his own companions, such as the underground filmmaker Annabella Miscuglio, of whom Baudelaire incorporates several films. Simultaneously, these films reflect on his city and his times, marked by the kidnapping of Aldo Moro and the revolutionary struggle – times which have heavily influenced Curran’s collaborative and performative processes.
