15 Corners of the World

Eugeniusz Rudnik revolutionized the idea of music itself with a pair of scissors and a magnetic tape. As part of the legendary Experimental Studio of Polish Radio, he revealed hidden value in rough and rejected sounds long before the rise of the DJs. In an era of electronic music created in a workshop resembling a scientific lab, he composed music to reach and to portray other human beings. “15 Corners of the World” is an attempt to hear the vision of his music.

    definitely my cup of tea, a mesmerizing and hypnotic documentary about the Polish electronic-music pioneer Eugeniusz Rudnik and, more importantly, about the visualisazion of sound and its materiality. A bit predictable in the second part, but still very fascinating. I wish I could see it on a big screen

    A documentary that uses experimental techniques to parallel electronic music on tape. Shot on film (the credits say it was some of the last 16mm Fuji film in Poland) which is appropriate for a story about music and sound created with tape, it's beautiful and abstract as we see one of the pioneers of music for tape at work and hear his compositions accompanied by visuals and dance inspired by the sounds.

    Me pareció bellísima la idea de las coincidencias sonoras a la hora de yuxtaponer dos pedazos de video aparentemente inconexos con el audio comprimido. Es un poco aburrido el documental porque está en polaco y hay que poner mucha atención a los subtítulos pero vale la pena el esfuerzo.

    A warm and emotionally engaging union of sound and vision.
