And now, ladies and germs… it’s time for a little dose of culture for today:
“I feel intuitively that music must have been the first cell from which language, science, and religion originated.” – George Crumb
George Crumb: Voice Of The Whale
coming to DVD on June 24th (MSRP: $19.99)
Robert Mugge’s 1976 portrait of renowned composer George Crumb featuring a performance of his composition “Vox Balaenae”
In 1976, “music filmmaker” Robert Mugge created his first music-related film. Titled GEORGE CRUMB: VOICE OF THE WHALE, it was a strikingly original, 54-minute portrait of Pulitzer Prize-winning and Grammy-winning composer George Crumb.
To celebrate the film’s 40th anniversary (it was first broadcast over PBS on June 6, 1978), MVD Visual is making available a newly remastered version on DVD, transferred to HD from the original 16mm film and lovingly restored.
