Trimpin: The Sound of Invention

Fri, Oct 23 / 7 pm
Sat, Oct 24 / 2 pm
Directed by Peter Esmonde
2009, USA, 79 min

This amusing exploration of the sonic world of an eccentric creative genius will delight anyone interested in the mysteries, pitfalls, and sheer joy of creative experiment. Artist, inventor, engineer and composer Trimpin shuns the hype and hyperbole of the commercial art world – yet his freewheeling sculptures and outrageous musical experiments are cherished by museums all over the planet. Filmed over two years the film follows the artist inventor as he designs a 60 foot tower of more than 500 electric guitars and builds an ensemble of huge marimbas that convert real time earthquake data into music as he collaborates with the Kronos Quartet.
