“Falling” is an experimental film based on the homonymous electronic composition of Delia Derbyshire. The original piece (“Falling”) is part of the program “DREAMS,” a collection of spliced/reassembled interviews with people describing their dreams. This program of sounds and voices was an attempt to re-create in five movements some sensations of dreaming — running away, falling, landscape, underwater and colour. All the voices were recorded from life and arranged in a setting of pure electronic sounds. This film is an attempt to extend the dimensions of the musical composition. Basic component of the visual body is the liquid element, a concurrence point between the video and the original music composition. “Falling is always a testimony of someone trying to stand on their feet.”
