Cameron Carpenter - The Sound Of My Life (Blu-Ray)
Not yet reviewed.
In collaboration with the American digital-organ makers Marshall and Ogletree, Cameron Carpenter has created his own dream instrument: a touring organ built to his own specifications. This revolutionary instrument dispenses with traditional pipes and instead uses digitalised sounds from instruments from across the globe. It is a radical break with tradition for any organist to choose a digital organ over a conventional pipe organ for both live performance and recording.
The film was directed by a well-known maker of music documentaries, Thomas Grube (Rhythm Is It, Trip To Asia, Lang Lang Liszt Now), and produced by Boomtown Media in collaboration with the German broadcasters ZDF/ARTE, the Japanese broadcaster Wowow and Sony Classical. In this highly personal account, Cameron Carpenter tells his own story and describes how he made his ambitious dream into reality. The film tells of Carpenter's personal life and the professional career of the man described by the Los Angeles Times as "a smasher of cultural and classical music taboos."
