With the documentary Sound, the innovative and experimental filmmaker Miroslav Sebestik provides a protracted cinematic exploration of the nature of sound <I>per se</I>. Taking full advantage of film's aural potential, Sebestik not only works in insightful, exploratory interviews with such luminaries as the late John Cage (the creator of the earth-shaking Roaratorio) and sound painter Knud Victor, but presents the audience with such euphonic and seldom-isolated sounds as a rabbit sleeping, the mechanical rhythm of a seabound river tugboat and an experimental symphony inspired by the noises of machine operations - to name only a few among a myriad of haunting examples. The program also explores the questions of how we listen and how we can direct our minds to listen more effectively - more artfully.
