“Chronicling the trial of Joan of Arc in the hours leading up to her execution, Danish master Carl Theodor Dreyer depicts her torment with startling immediacy, employing an array of techniques—expressionistic lighting, interconnected sets, painfully intimate close-ups—to immerse viewers in her subjective experience.” (Criterion Film Collection)

Carl Theodor Dreyer’s film epic The Passion of Joan of Arc will be live scored utilizing analog and digital sound equipment and software, including modular synth, eurorack, internet radio, and artist-created instruments and conductive objects.

“During the pandemic, I began to explore performance for social media, creating sculptures that would fit into the frame of Instagram, per se, outfitting them with computers and code I programmed in order to play them as digital instruments. These instruments were constructed from found objects, such as a sewing box, copper plumbing hardware, driftwood, etc.” – kraftwitch (John Moletress)
