Im Kampf Mit Dem Teufel / Struggle With The Devil
Released 12.03.21 on DSO Player, "Im Kampf Mit Dem Teufel" / "Struggle With The Devil", a new music film designed, collaged and animated by Ergo Phizmiz, in collaboration with the Deutsch Symphonie Orchester and director Frederic Wake-Walker.
On 12 March at 8.30 pm, a new music film by the DSO will have its premiere. With 'Struggle with the Devil' (Im Kampf mit dem Teufel), director Frederic Wake-Walker and visual artist Ergo Phizmiz bring to expressionistic life the one-act operas 'Sancta Susanna' by Paul Hindemith and 'Slzy Nože' (The Tears of the Knife) by Bohuslav Martinů, as well as the contemporary orchestral work 'Sinuous Voices' by Ondřej Adámek. Through collages and animations rich in references and innuendos, in combination with footage shot both in the Green Screen Studio and in the Kleiner Sendesaal of the rbb in February, an associative visual world is opened up that is inspired by the 1920s and congenially presents both music and content.
The premiere of the film, which was co-produced with EuroArts and produced in cooperation with Deutschlandfunk Kultur, will take place on the DSO PLAYER and will remain available there for free as video-on-demand for 30 days.
