Alternative soundtrack for Paradjanov’s masterpiece The Color of the Pomegranate.
The movie depicts the spiritual transformation of an armenian poet, Sayat Nova who lived in the Caucasus in the 18th century. The images are like surrealist paintings, moving symbolic landscapes filled with armenian visual elements.
Working on this movie meant a lot for me. It adresses the relationship diasporas can have with their « motherland’s » culture while living in globalized societies. I gathered musicians playing traditional instruments like duduk, tombak or sarangi, processing and blending them with real-time software effects. A mix between abstract and traditional sounds and structures.
