Four musicians and sound artists from radically different backgrounds – Miya Masaoka, a koto performer and composer inspired by insects and plants; Jon Rose, a violin virtuoso whose “found music” created with fencing and other apparatus has attracted the attention of the Kronos Quartet; John Luther Adams, whose tones are motivated by the natural landscape and Bob Ostertag, who integrates sociopolitical concerns into his pieces—not only express their perceptions about music but use their musical talents to create ingenious social harmonies in an increasingly hostile universe. Directed By Steve Elkins. Award for Best Essay, 29th International Festival of Films on Art in Montreal.
