The first weeks with our newborn twins, getting used to waking up early, the new sounds in the house, imagining the world through their eyes. Prompted by Bartók’s études – Mikrokosmos, book 1. This is the third installment in a series of films that explore the structures and strategies of short musical forms from the late 19th and early 20th century as inspirations for the cinematic treatment of personal experiences.
