NW Film Center & Creative Music Guild present THE REACH OF RESONANCE featuring live music by Turtle

Reach of Resonance

THE REACH OF RESONANCE juxtaposes the creative paths of four musicians and sound artists from different parts of the world. Miya Masaoka, a composer who plays the koto, uses music to study the social behavior of insects and the physiology of plants. Using a violin bow, Jon Rose, a violin virtuoso, transforms barbed-wire fences into musical instruments. John Luther Adams’s work is inspired by his fascination with the landscapes of Alaska, while Bob Ostertag integrates sociopolitical issues into his performances. By contrasting the creative worlds of each of these artists—united by the renowned Kronos Quartet—the film explores music as a tool for developing meaningful relationships between people and the complexities of the world in which they live. (118 mins.)

Co-presented with the Creative Music Guild’s Improvisation Summit of Portland, June 5-7.
