SYNOPSIS

After her father's death, Marja followed in his footsteps and became the bandleader of the legendary Krautrock collective Embryo. She continues her father's tradition while seeking her musical path in a male-dominated industry. But as the hectic pace increases, so does the noise. 

PROGRAM NOTE

The film experiments with how to deliver music in a movie. Marja Burchhard is a musician who tries many musical attempts as a multi-instrumentalist. Her father, Cristian Burchhard, is a well-known musician in Germany who was a member of a fusion jazz band Embryo and passed away in 2018. Marja reflects on the traces he left and his influence over her. On the other hand, she expresses her music with other musicians and artists. The film steps further from showing the parts of Marja's life and tries to make a cinematic composition of the music that her life centers around and sound expressed as music. The film visualizes auditory senses and organs, makes the audience experience the influence of sound, and brings the moments we can encounter through sound. Just like Marja is fascinated by music, the film is fascinated by sound. Throughout the movie, we experience sounds, some from daily lives and some as artistic forms of music, which are not just heard but experienced. It visualizes the magical moments that can be conveyed through sound. [CHOI Yiwon]
