Klaus Huber at Work


Music Documentary, 60 min, 2009

Directed by Barbara Eckle

A portrait of renowned contemporary Swiss composer Klaus Huber. The camera follows the rehearsal of his work … à l’ âme de déscendre de sa monture et marcher sur ses pieds de soi… which is based on Mahmoud Darwish’s Le Siège (Ramallah, 2002).

Refraining from taking a retrospective approach, this documentary gives an insight into meaning and motivation through demonstrations and commentaries by the musicians and the composer himself. The portrait is followed by the full length concert.
