Un Chien Andaloù (Louis Bunuel & Salvador Dalì, 1929) is considered as the most significant movie of Surrealist Cinema. A short movie with apparently no plot but with lots of metaphors; the idea came out initially from the meeting of two dreams had by the authors. The soundtrack by Comfort (Alessandro Baris, Leonardo Chirulli and Fabio Elia), with contributes by Donato Epiro (flute, bass) and Toni Virgillitto (cello), divides the different moments and images into small music pieces with elements of post rock, contemporary music and electronics following the deconstruction of the movie and its psychological feeling. The work is been premiered and awarded at the Moviemento Festival at Galleria Teatro Toledo in Naples in 2007.
Berlin: Die Sinfonie der Großstadt (Walter Ruttmann, 1927) It portrays the life of a city, mainly through visual impressions in a semi-documentary style, without the narrative content of more mainstream films. It can be actually considered as an experimental documentary. The music composed by Berliner collective The Somnambulist (Marco Bianciardi and Rafael Bord) with contribute by Alessandro Baris on drums, often follows dynamic of images and it runs along the daily life of the city and has a taste of post rock melted with by the sound of Theremin and Violin performed by Bord. This score is been awarded with two first prizes at Rimusicazioni festival in Bolzano in 2014 and has been hosted by Centre des Arts in Paris, Kme festival in Cagliari, Intergalactique festival in Brest, La Cinematique in Toulouse, La Bobine in Grenoble, amongst others.
