Film Love: Mauricio Kagel's Two-Man Orchestra
8:00PM - - -

FILM LOVE presents

Mauricio Kagel:
Film Music, Music Performance, Performance Film

Program Two: Two-Man Orchestra



Musician as actor, composer as filmmaker, film as concert Ė the works of Mauricio Kagel constantly upend conventions and expectations. Often, his compositions are actually theater pieces, except played by virtuoso musicians in a concert hall rather than actors in a theater. He instructed musicians to play guitars with fan blades and coffee mills, and constructed giant instruments in which musicians were encased. In addition to creating a vast compositional output, Kagel doubled as a film director, with typically mindblowing results.

PROGRAM TWO
Program Two is an exceedingly rare screening of Kagelís film Two-Man Orchestra. Two musicians are inserted into Kagelís specially built one-man-band setups (of over 250 instruments!) which they control with their fingers, feet, legs, heads and any other possible way. Trapped in these enormous, overgrown constructions and dealing with their unpredictable malfunctions, the performers evoke everything from Charlie Chaplin to circus music to complete atonality in a virtuoso physical and musical feat.

PROGRAM:
Zwei-Mann-Orchester (Two-Man Orchestra) (film, 1973, 71 minutes)

Mauricio Kagel: Film Music, Music Performance, Performance Film is a Film Love event. The Film Love series provides access to rare but important films, and seeks to increase awareness of the rich history of experimental and avant-garde film. The series is curated and hosted by Andy Ditzler for Frequent Small Meals. Film Love was voted Best Film Series in Atlanta by the critics of Creative Loafing in 2006, and appears in Atlanta Magazine's Best of Atlanta 2009.
