Performing Love: A Short Skype Film

Music by Flim
About Performing Love
The idea is simple:
Conjure up the feeling. Relive the emotion.
Passion, elation, surrender,
Fragments of emotions captured and assembled.
And the music does its thing: a gift of power and energy
To moving images
About the most beautiful thing.
So play it. Watch it. Have it around.
Hang it like a painting,
Or make it an event.
Suitable for social gatherings, apéritifs, and late night drinks
Art galleries, cinemas, bathrooms, waiting areas
Solitary evenings, leisurely afternoons, and busy mornings
Or anywhere, at anytime.
As a meditation tool, a decorative object, a sleeping pill,
Or the next best thing.
Enjoy it, share it, send it out; talk about it.
Let’s reach as many as possible.

"Cy Twombly’s paintings are for me landscapes of this foreign and yet familiar terrain. Some of them appear to be laid out under a blinding noon sun, others have been found by touch at night. In neither case can any dictionary of words be referred to, for the light does not allow it. Here in these mysterious paintings we have to rely on other accuracies: accuracies of tact, of longing, of loss, of expectation."
