filmmaker Caroline Martel in person plus a live demonstration of the Martenot by ondiste Geneviève Grenier

director:
Caroline Martel

A poetic exploration of the early electronic instrument, the Martenot, and its recent rebirth as one of the 20th century’s major musical innovations. Integrating vérité, never-before-seen archives and musical highlights, this cinematic journey reveals Maurice Martenot as a missing link in our understanding of the cultural and technological history of the last century. Replete with the rich musical and sonic repertoire of the Martenot, this polyphonic documentary features an original soundtrack performed by Suzanne Binet-Audet, the “Jimi Hendrix of the Martenot.” "Amazing! A film as beautiful and tender as the instrument itself." (Jonny Greenwood, Radiohead)
