Paul Avery's Found Super 8mm Film

to see video click link: Avery's Found Film

Avery’s film plays on a small digital monitor in the top portion of my replica of the Avery’s apartment building model. When a digital copy of the film was first broadcast on BBC World News on October 12, 2008, it became a small sensation on YouTube and other file sharing networks. I downloaded Avery’s film online. One of the most remarkable discoveries in 2008 was a handwritten note from Polish jazz legend Krzystof Komeda, the “Miles Davis of Polish Jazz”. On the note was an experimental score aparently intended as a soundtrack for Avery’s short film. Komeda’s score literally layered on top of one another, 9 separate compositions by himself, as well as Miles Davis, John Coltrane, and a bossa nova song, all the music had been introduced to him by Avery, including music he had written in response. I then recreated the soundtrack from mp3 files of the musical “samples” mentioned in Krzystof Komeda’s note and experimental score, translated and supplied by Emilia Gierczak, curator of The Pawel Avorsky Museum in Warsaw. Komeda’s intended soundtrack is connected here with Avery’s found film for the first time.
