I love Bach’s Goldberg Variations meeting Chris Marker’s X-plugs while the camera is rotating… and GEE’s evasive gesture at 30:08

The music is brilliant there. I imagine it on the big screen at that point. I wasn’t sure what piece it was, thanks for filling us in. If anyone is wondering about the Ghent reference at the end, CM writes (via an anonymous friend): “Invited to do an Ouvroir Tour in Ghent next Friday, Guillaume (having concluded that live tours are frustrating for the performer and for the audience) decided to make it a 30 min movie – and as usual, I followed.”

This short is great. I wrote Chris once and he sent me a picture of William Of Egypt!

Un chat poète nous ouvre les portes d’un nouveau monde. Comme une promesse. Espérons qu’elle soit tenue et que d’autres petits films suivront.

What is the music? It isn’t bach’s goldberg variations

Good question, francis. Can anyone out there answer it?

I feel like i’ve heard it on the end of an apocalyptic movie before. It sounds like its from the 20th century at least.. maybe
