LIVE ONLINE PERFORMANCE / Experimental Documentary - Sarajevo: City Symphony
CITY SYMPHONY live audio visual performance/experimental
33 min., 2012
Sarajevo: City Symphony is
an audio visual performance and experimental documentary inspired
by the City of Sarajevo and its people who lived and who live
in this amazing historical place. The music is a recording
by John Consiglio, Christopher Ottinger and Zlatko Ćosić. Ćosić used new visuals from Sarajevo while doing live video mix.
"The mix of B&W
and color and especially the sound do a great job of evoking
the history. I had goose bumps while viewing some parts of it.
Maybe because of some of my life experiencing in Vietnam during
the war, I could well relate to historical aspects of your work.
I would like to know more fully what went through your mind when
you made the video and how you decided where to shoot and how
to shoot the footage. I certainly like the diagonal tower, the
intermingling of B&W and color scenes, and the ghost-like figures. The fact that they move backward
could be explained by the fact that the video is a visit to history.
The birds at the beginning and ending nicely connect the whole
piece as well as the past and present together. Great job! I
enjoyed this piece a lot." Hoa Le
