Take Five With Barb Januszkiewicz
I have been working on this cool film about passion, fusion, and innovation called The Composer
, with Matthew Shipp. The Composer
project is a unique artistic and musical collaboration devoid of the hindrances of unnecessary language to distract the viewer. It is an avant-garde film that weaves together a musical and visual experience from a piano's perspective. Challenging the norm with non-verbal communication encourages the viewer to internalize the true meaning of the film and to really get into the music. It's a fascinating relationship between Shipp and an exquisite, rare Fazioli piano, which is a piece of art in and of itself. It is truly spellbinding. What's your greatest fear when you perform?
