"Only Connect The first ever live performance of four short films featuring
collaborations between pioneering and acclaimed film directors and
The New Math(s) directed by Hal Hartley is screened with Andriessen's score
performed by Dutch new music ensemble Electra. For Pilgrimage, Sir John
Tavener sets music to the images of the infamous Werner Herzog performed by
Parvin Cox, BBC Symphony Orchestra, and Westminster Cathedral Choir
by Paul Goodwin. In Absentia Karlheinz Stockhausen's experimental sounds are
played back to the obsessively detailed work of the enigmatic The Brothers
Quay. For Nicolas Roeg's The Sound, Adrian Utley of Portishead has created a
new score featuring a range of special guests. Sound on Film was
by BBC TV and pipeline films (executive producer Rodney Wilson)."
