My original idea was to make a documentary film exploring how sound is created from an instrument, which is an empty vessel, and how it may resemble the human body. I came across the very interesting Franck Emery, a bass guitarist, and while interviewing him, the subject of the film evolved from the creation of sound to the relationship between the musician and his instrument, and the companionship and the conversations between them.

 

 

I directed, edited and produced this documentary film in collaboration with the Kinoctambule, an international laboratory of filmmakers in Saint-Étienne, France.
