Pitor Kamler b. 1936
Coeur de secours (1973)
Duration: 9'19"

Music by Francois Bayle

Visually, this one brings to mind Edward Gorey as well as shadow puppet plays. The opening suggests that Kamler is exploring the nature of time here, and indeed it's difficult to imagine anyone better suited to do so than a stop-motion animator. Note the interesting recursive scalar relationship wherein the men playing chess are themselves inside of a rook on a larger chessboard. Once again, Kamler works with a genius of electronic music from GRM - this time, composer Francois Bayle.
