Sun Dogs Performance
FotoFocus and the Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra present Sun Dogs. Named after an atmospheric optical phenomenon, the program features pairs of composers and filmmakers in collaboration, each offering a unique perspective of the natural world through short-format films fused with new music performed by the CSO, conducted by CSO Creative Partner, Matthias Pintscher. Produced in collaboration with Liquid Music as part of the 2022 FotoFocus Biennial: World Record, Sun Dogs seeks to understand the natural world that cannot be touched or measured. Typically a composer responds to a director’s ideas in a film scoring capacity, or a filmmaker is given music to respond to visually, but Sun Dogs explores how stories can be told with music and film from equal footing.
A “sun dog” is an atmospheric optical phenomenon produced by refracted light, allowing us to briefly see another realm.
