The Sound of the Carceri, directed by François Girard, is an episode from the “Inspired by Bach” program starring the world renowned cellist Yo-Yo Ma.
The Sound of the Carceri explores the deep relationship between music and architecture through a high-tech “virtual confrontation” between Bach and his contemporary, the architect Giovanni Battista Piranesi. Using a striking visual style, director François Girard, places Yo-Yo Ma within a series of computer-generated, three-dimensional recreations of Piranesi’s well-known prison etchings.
Through Yo-Yo Ma’s and music producer Steven Epstein’s struggle to recreate and interact with the imaginary space that Ma performs in, the film examines the complexity of illusion, of representation and reality.
