Music for One Apartment and Six Drummers

Music for One Apartment and Six Drummers - MPEG-4 clip
From Ikea’s homeland, a furniture object oriented musical short movie.

“Six drummers participate in a well planned musical attack in the suburbs. As an elderly couple leave their apartment the drummers take over. On everyday objects they give a concert in four movements: kitchen, bedroom, bathroom and livingroom. The drummers perform on everything from dogdishes and slippers to toiletbrush and microwave oven. The hidden music in the household objects is just waiting to be brought to life.”

The movie is the work of Sweden duo Johannes Stjärne Nilsson and Ola Simonsson, members of Kostr Films, an independent production company that works with short, documentry and featurefilms as well as music production and art projects.

Johannes Stjärne Nilsson has a Master of Fine Arts (MFA) in industrial design and is also a cartoonist and illustrator.

Ola Simonsson has a Master of Fine Arts (MFA) in music education as singing-master and is also a singer and musician.

Dalla patria di Ikea, un corto musicale orientato agli oggetti… di mobilia.

“Sei percussionisti partecipano ad un ben congegnato attacco musicale. Quando un’attempata coppia lascia l’appartamento il piano scatta. Usando oggetti ordinari, i sei danno un concerto in quattro movimenti: cucina, camera da letto, bagno e soggiorno. Il gruppo esegue i pezzi usando di tutto: dalle pantofole, agli spazzolini da denti, al forno a microonde. La musica nascosta negli oggetti di casa aspetta solo di esser portata alla vita.”

Il film e’ opera di un duo svedese, Johannes Stjärne Nilsson ed Ola Simonsson, membri di Kostr Films, un compagnia di produzione indipendente che si occupa di corti, documentari e film, cosi’ come di produzione musicale e progetti artistici.

Johannes Stjärne Nilsson ha un Master of Fine Arts (MFA) in design industriale ed e’ anche vignettista ed illustratore.

Ola Simonsson ha un Master of Fine Arts (MFA) in educazione musicale come insegnante ed e’ anche cantante e musicista.
