"The magical photography by Adam Sebire of Sydney’s visual icons is matched by thematic, orchestral, and solo sounds which do not attempt to paint the visuals in sound... Sebire’s inspired filming of Sydney, both present and historical, provides a visual singing of Sydney. Especially magical were the scenes of 18th and 19th century paintings superimposed on the Opera House and Circular Quay locations."
35mm film with Dolby SR audio, 4'00".
We track in and then around what appears to be Man Ray’s classic surrealist image featuring his muse Kiki. Beautiful shapes and silhouettes - including an ancient Greek gymnopédiste - dance serenely in the background. For just a moment before metamorphosis, our violoncelle comes to life to sing us a poem set to Satie’s haunting Gymnopédie No.1. “ Le Violoncelle” is a single-shot micro-voyage into the creative milieux of Man Ray, Erik Satie & Kiki de Montparnasse, and from the beginnings of photographic manipulation to the present era of digital duplicity.

Christopher Shepard conducts and also takes us on a short tour of Bernstein's secular and religious influences.
