Movie Info

Lou Harrison: A World of Music paints an intimate portrait of an extraordinary American composer who followed his own dreams with unbridled style. Trading a fast-paced New York career for a remote cabin in the woods to recover from a breakdown, Lou Harrison (1917-2003) confronted his demons by writing beautiful music. Bucking the dissonant sound of the times he embraced "delight over duty," freely combining Western, Eastern and custom-made instruments built by his partner, William Colvig. Harrison's artistic curiosity and courage produced one of the great trans-cultural visions and musical legacies of the 20th century. This documentary is the culmination of two decades of documentation and research resulting in 300+ hours of performances, rehearsals, and interviews that were made with Lou Harrison, his life partner William Colvig, and Harrison's contemporaries and associates. -- (C) Official Site
