HEAR MY EYES: BARAKA
WITH ORIGINAL LIVE SCORE AND ROBOTICS BY DYLAN MARTORELL
Past and present weave together in this musical experience from the internationally renowned Dylan Martorell, whose custom-built robotics will perform an original score to Ron Fricke’s visual masterpiece Baraka alongside Martorell and his band. Martorell’s projects use upcycling, DIY culture, robotics and alternative power sources to bring up ideas about transience, sustainability and community. The ideas will play out against the chaotic cities and barren wilderness of Baraka, bringing the classic 1992 film into the 21st century.
Hear My Eyes screenings are audio-visual events that push the conventions of film and sound beyond their familiar forms. Translating the original cinematic experience for the 21st century, the Hear My Eyes team work with local musicians to reinterpret a film’s soundtrack and perform it live at the screening.
