This landmark project marries Dziga Vertov's 1929 silent masterpiece, The Man with a Movie Camera, with the Voxare Quartet's ingenuity, musical prowess, and aesthetic sensibilities to create an unforgettable and unique experience.
“With rustic melodies made edgy through piquant harmonies, and in passages of turbulent mechanical chugging, the music neatly corresponded to Vertov’s jumpy barrage of images. The members of the quartet, seated in darkness to one side of the stage, played with precision and passion”—The New York Times.
