MINOR MATTERS

– video, 7min, produced during Cinemovement, Zambales, Philippines, 2019

Over a course of an afternoon the video captures young musicians at practice. The camera flows from one student to another, following the rhythm of their movements as they repeat and vary through time. The proximity of the practice cubicles and the sunlight make for a play of reflections and transparencies. While the bodies in movement start to overlap, the sounds converge into a medley.

The accompanying narration focuses on the very intimate and bodily relationship the students develop with their instruments.
