AboutSam Belinfante's projects endeavour to bridge the gap between the
visual and the musical. His film works, for example, exist in a curious space between performance and documentation. For Penumbra musicians are asked to take an improvised journey across their voice. During this an array of sounds, both intentional and accidental, are emitted in the gradual search of a clearly voiced tone.
Running alongside this aural expedition is an optical one; the performer's movements are paralleled by that of the camera. As sounds emerge, so do images, as the camera's lens pulls in and out of focus in duet with the musician.
