Shades of Meaning
Shades Of Meaning
16mm, color, sound, 10 min.
© 1986 Andy Moore
A poetic meditation on music and meaning in cinema. Aurally iconic music fragments (from theater pipe organ recordings) have been cut up, looped, re-composed, and combined with eclectically chosen imagery shot mostly in the western United States. The result is both a reflection of the artist’s sensibilities and a commentary on commercial media values. At once a celebration of visual beauty and mystery, and a semiological investigation into how musical codes and imagery combine to create meaning, Shades Of Meaning has been called paradoxical, mystical and elegant, pregnant with multiple meanings and a powerful tool for reflection.
