The new film from visual artist and filmmaker Eric Baudelaire has a long, unpredictable title and consists of three chapters. The three chapters each have the subtitles “Four Flat Tires”, “The Lost Score”, and “When There Is No More Music to Write”, and each is a fragmentary and independent story. All of these relate to works created by Alvin Curran, an American avant-garde sound artist who settled in Rome in the mid-1960s, in a group called “Musica Elettronica Viva”. Although they can be classified as a trilogy because of their different origins, Baudelaire, inspired by Curran’s improvisations, juxtaposes them with the radical struggles that arose in Italy and America in the 1960s and 1970s. The chaotic combination of archived and discovered images and sounds illuminates the significance of music as a radical act of struggle in a turbulent history.
