Music on Film

• Wolf Kahlen DE The sound of one hand clapping - John Cage at one of his last concerts 18 min, DV, 1990/99

• The sound of one hand clapping is Wolf Kahlen's homage to the work of John Cage. Cage, whom Kahlen knew since 1980, gave his actually last European public concert at the Akademie der Künste Berlin/GDR in 1990, a few months before his passing away. The main actors here are hands, actionless or acting, nervous or waiting. And clapping. The title corresponds to Cage's zen-buddhist philosophy and life style.

• Raymond Salvatore Harmon US Chronicle 75 mins, DV, 2006

Chronicle is a live performance of the Chicago Underground Trio turned inside out as a dense experimental film. Chronicle is unlike any music performance film made to date. Often verging into the psychedelic, both sonically and visually.
