Narratività, ritmo e forma audiovisivi in Regen di Joris Ivens con musica di Hanns Eisler.
Joris Ivens’ experimental film Regen and the music Hanns Eisler composed for it represent individually two major achievements in the artistic career of both the Dutch director and the German composer. Their union yielded a peculiar audiovisual product for at least two main reasons: on the one hand the music was composed more than ten years later, on the other hand, a result of a research project, Eisler’s composition responded to specific theoretical intentions that ‘commercial’ film music does not generally have. It is mostly because of the latter aspect that we can look at ‘Eisler’s Regen’ with a unique analytic perspective aimed to highlight traces of continuity in both the video and the music under three complementary viewpoints: narrative, rhythmic and formal. The outcome of such an analysis is meant to give proof of a highly integrated audiovisual creation that is rarely found in the history of experimental cinema.
