Short Film : TRANSMIGRATIONS, 6min., USA, Experimental/Drama

Shot over Lake Michigan near Chicago, this film is an expression of my engagement with line and the contrapuntal movement of multiple lines in music and imagery. The visual lines here are traces of the motion of air and lake traffic against the apparent motion of the stars and moon.

The forces guiding the lines of the paths of airplanes, boats, the interacting lines in music, the hand of the artist, are physics, history, genetics, culture, and the idiosyncrasies of the traveler’s own imagination and requirements. These urgent lines of human intent are drawn over the steady motion of celestial objects guided only by physics.

The music, composed by William Harper and conducted by Gudmundur Emilsson with the Latvian Radio Choir is also a construction of lines. The vocal music is created from text and melody first written down sometime during the 5th to 9th centuries. It is a prayer for peace and mercy. In this film, It is our voices seeking relief from the relentless restlessness of our endeavors.
