Phill Niblock: The Movement of People Working

2003 NR

Pairing a minimalist soundtrack with hypnotic visuals, avant-garde musician and filmmaker Phill Niblock examines the physics of manual work in this collection of short movies that focuses on craftsmen, farmers and laborers around the world. Niblock skillfully links the natural repetition of tasks such as weaving or milking a cow with his own rhythms, demonstrating that even the most mundane human activities generate beautiful music.
