Ernst Lubitsch

PAOLO SPACCAMONTI E RAMON MORO SONORIZZANO DIE PUPPE

Germany 1919 , 66'

 

Paolo Spaccamonti & Ramon Moro perform the live soundtrack of Ernst Lubitsch’s DIE PUPPE, 1919

Paolo Spaccamonti: guitar, synth

Ramon Moro: trumpet, flugelhorn


After the very well-received live soundtrack of Vampyr (C. T. Dreyer) produced by the Pesaro Film Festival along with the Turin Museo del Cinema in 2018, Spaccamonti & Moro join once again on the crime scene to play the live soundtrack of one of the most brilliant  and grotesque films of 1919. The Doll is actually a true gem of black humour and anti-misogyny, helmed by an Ernst Lubitsch in a state of grace showing off his unbridled creativity between half-concealed eroticism and a pinch of anti-clericalism.

A decade of bare, unvarnished Wall; of wild, but reasoned programming; of illustrious and essential proposals. A space for experimentation whose embryo hatched in 2015. But then images clung to the Wall like ivy does in Spring, and sounds were set free like outlandish fireflies giving off their flashes over nocturnal paths. Now the Wall has become a (mutant and mutable) meeting that can’t be missed. Senses are unchained in a space in which, nourished by vibrating gazes, foraged by precious imaginaries, suggestions are redeemed. Novel psycho-temporal premieres, unique experiences that, between improvisations, surgical synchronizations, and emotional experiments, have elevated the unreal and turned it into… a reality. Palazzo Gradari, the temple of imagination. The five events of this year, poised between light and abyss, will give voice to original impromptu, and therefore absolute, experiences. Past the 2015-2024 twilight, the Wall of Sound is ready to take off.

Anthony Ettorre

 

We have looked this decade of projecting images onto the Wall of Palazzo Gradari in the eyes. We have caressed the profile of musicians intertwined with film directors of the past and the present, between the calculated gestures of actors and actresses or immersed in pure pictures untethered from any story. We have put all our desires in a row. The result was these 5 evenings, made of 5 unique live soundtracks, several unexpected meetings, animals, soccer players, and little dolls. The common thread – do not touch bare-handed! – might be the sweet dissolution of identity, when it becomes too stiff and makes us cantankerous and  savage. It could also be the desire to discuss seriously about games and playing, discarding the fascist trivial assertion that it’s “stuff for children.” We’ll be waiting for critical analyses. We will never give up. 

Vittorio Ondedei

 

The Wall of Sound reversed the idea that this solid, vertical object, the wall, conveys the notion of blocking, filtering, pushing back, separating, defending, shutting. 
The images and sounds that have been played on that surface over the years made that wall crumble and collapse, every time. 
The miracle is repeated punctually with the same enthusiasm and the same desire.
The wall becomes liquid, and we can cross it. Beyond it, there is infinity. By Palazzo Gradari, the divisive function of walls was never given a chance to exist. Ever.
