The Oblique

The music, ‘Blues in B-flat’ by Volker Heyn, performed by cellist Anton Lukoszevieze, provides the framework for ‘The Oblique’. The title comes from an instruction in the score: ‘oblique down stroke’ – a call to the cellist to use an oblique bow. In the film branches of magnolia extend into the empty cavity of the cello, the space where sound resonates.
