Puccini Conservato

PUCCINI CONSERVATO

Puccini Conservato uses a CD, a sound recording of some Puccini music (from La Boheme). The source of the sound (the loudspeakers) in a continuous hand-held panning (guided by the music), intercut with shots of flowers or wood-fire, exemplifying the lyricism in Puccini's music. By being a recording of a recording, the work proclaims the artificiality of the sound. However the beauty and humanity of the music comes through too. (Michael Snow)
