MUTED in the movies - a documentary
Filmmaker Bas Andriessen followed Monica and MUTED from start to...? This is far from a finished story... the film ends with the completion of the whisperviolin and the culmination of a year's touring with MUTED. Bas is currently in the throes of editing hours (days) of footage to make MUTED ready for the silver screen. Watch this space!
photos: the whisperviolin coming to life. Luthier Bas Maas and designer Marcel Wanders created an entirely new, ingenious, lower-decibel instrument, inspired by and loosely modeled on the 17th-century pochette violin but created to explore the world of quieter sounds.
