On April 24th, 2010, Dave Douglas and experimental filmmaker Bill Morrison unveiled their multimedia collaboration, Spark Of Being, at Stanford University. On film, it stands as a reinterpretation of that Frankenstein myth using new, archival, and distressed footage. The themes, penned by Douglas for his Grammy-nominated band Keystone, integrate electronics seamlessly into the improvised music, piecing sounds and movement together to make three strikingly different Creatures.
SOUNDTRACK is literally the soundtrack to the film by Bill Morrison.
EXPAND contains the ‘straight’ performances of themes written for the film.
BURST includes themes recorded at the session that did not appear in the film.
