Write. Direct. Edit. Début.

I recently heard Beethoven’s “Moonlight Sonata” played live at the Barbican and just had to create something from this music. What Amália Rodrigues talks about in this VO from a recording in 1966:

“I think that people who sing,
must be authentic.
I feel I don’t have and will never
have another quality.
But this defect of being sincere and authentic,
I have.”
