Paper Music


Paper Music one of the latest projects in the long-time, ongoing collaboration between Johannesburg-born visual artist William Kentridge and his South African compatriot Philip Miller.

Their artistic partnership dates back to Kentridge’s 1993 film Felix in Exile, part of his celebrated Soho Eckstein series for which Miller wrote the score. Paper Music is a witty, poignant, a gently subversive song-and-film cycle; it unites films, mostly animations based on William Kentridge’s charcoal and ink drawings, with live musical performances by vocalists Ann Masina and Joanna Dudley, pianist Vincenzo Pasquariello, and composer Philip Miller. A fascinating exploration of the relationships between sound and image.
