Only little bits of music
Muybridge’s Strings (2011, dir. Koji Yamamura, features music by J.S. Bach)
Koji Yamaurma studied as a painter and then got involved with anime
Anime painters work on short products because it takes a really long time to work on a lm,
about 10 drawings per fame, so it takes a long time for anime lms to come out
After Koji was very successful with A country doctor, he got called to do another movie called
Muybridge string – this movie was interested in how animals ran (for example, whether a
running horse use all its hooves at the same time while running
- Set up a came in front of a running horse and took a string attached it to a horse hooves
took shots of each step
- Going backward in time
Muybridge – he decided he would like a Bach cannon = there are strict imitation
- Cannons can go backwards/forwards = “crab cannon” is the main music
- Daughter is playing this on the piano
Movie Clip
- Sequential photographs of animals *
- Recorded musical sounds backwards – each note sounded like it was getting bigger
- Muybrige killed wifes lover – lots of dissonance
- Created lm with music in minde
Atayama (Mount Head) (2002, dir. Koji Yamamura, score Takakaru Kunimoto)
Japanese folk tale
He decided to hire a traditional Japanese ensemble
Quicker process
Film
- Shamisen (instrument that is plucked) in the lm
- He calls himself an auteur because he really keeps a rm hand on all aspects – takes so
long to make a lm that he is very protective of it
