Metamorphoses - The Composers Lab Experiments: Gingger Shankar, A.J. Lara, and Arthur Hyde

Institute History

  • 2009 Sundance Film Festival


The third edition of the Composers Lab Experiments at New Frontier features a collaboration between musician extraordinaire Gingger Shankar and filmmakers A.J. Lara and Arthur Hyde. In their multimedia performance, Metamorphoses, Gingger Shankar and special guest musicians elegantly score the walls of time and space. These musicians test the boundaries of organic versus electronic music and find where the two meet. While the musicians uniquely create hybrid, Lara and Hyde scuplt the visual architecture through a fusion of mind and motion. As the participants play with sight and sound, a live journey through life and dreams unfolds.

While this information is limited and doesn't necessarily represent the full list of participants (e.g. actors and crew), it is the list given to us by the main film/play/project contact at the time, based on the space restrictions of our publications. Each entry in the Online Archives is meant as a historical record of a particular film, play, or project at the time of its involvement with Sundance Institute. For this reason, we can only amend an entry if a name is misspelled, or if the entry does not correctly reflect the original publication.
