JERRY MOSS PLAZA AT THE MUSIC CENTER
MARCH 20, 2021 - APRIL 18, 2021
One of the two films of the 71 top submissons selected out of more than 400 submissions.
Touching has been a “touchy” subject during this pandemic, especially the physical touch we have learned to repress from each other. As humans, we constantly seek for a connection with the world around us and the film captures the energetic communication that is exchanged through contact.
Music paired with "Malachite" by Roger and Brian Eno.
From The Music Center's Website:
A Quiet Scene: L.A. is a free film project and screening initiative that asked the public to create an original short film that is an authentic reflection of Los Angeles during current times, using a track from Roger and Brian Eno's Luminous EP as the score. A Quiet Scene: L.A. provides a Los Angeles perspective to the highly successful 2020 public audio-visual project—A Quiet Scene—created by Deutsche Grammophon and the Eno brothers in 2020 in support of their Mixing Colours album; this program featured short scenes shot by people from their newly found confined spaces at home in the first wave of the global pandemic. The competition/screening project is presented by The Music Center, Los Angeles’ performing arts center, and dublab, a community supported radio station based on Los Angeles, and in collaboration with Deutsche Grammophon.
