Introducing Mountain: an epic cinematic and musical collaboration between the ACO and BAFTA-nominated Sherpa director Jennifer Peedom.
Building on the achievement of the ACO’s The Reef,Mountain reflects on the beauty, diversity and fragility of these timeless natural monuments: symbols of spirituality; haven from manmade devastation; essential to the planet’s eco-system.
The remoteness of mountain cultures has offered the humans and animals who live there relative protection from the rampages of the modern world.
Throughout production, Richard Tognetti has worked with Jennifer Peedom to assemble a stunning soundscape to mirror the serenity, magnitude, harshness and terror of the landscapes filmed, with works by Chopin, Grieg, Vivaldi, Beethoven and new works by Richard himself.
Mountain will be a unique musical journey through vistas that few have visited and none have seen in this way.
Presented in partnership with Sydney Film Festival andVivid LIVE.
