Organic abstract images dance to/with Baroque music (Arcangelo Corelli's "Variations on La Follia," magnificently transcribed and interpreted by Quadro Janas).
The music was recorded live, in Sardinia, during Quadro Janas' first public concert.
The musicians are: Paola Erdas (harpsichord), Lorenzo Cavasanti and Dorothee Oberlinger (recorders) and Jorge Alberto Guerrero (cello).
This remarkable version was found on an amazing web site solely dedicated to "La Folia": folias.nl/
I listened there and elsewhere to many (many!) versions, some very well known, Quadro Janas' was without a doubt the one that spoke to me the most.
I then contacted Paola Erdas (paolaerdas.it) who kindly embarked with me in this adventure (with much help from Andrea Lausi).
Paola and I have made several other films together since, many availabe here on Vimeo (With Paola Erdas), this one has remained as a genuine highlight in my life.
We hope some day to do a live images - music concert together, and that day may just be around the corner...
Here's an album of stills pulled from "La Folia" tinyurl.com/y8xntyvj
