Un Chanteur Invisible

In 2019, I played blockflutes for Nico Maas‘ score for the film Un Chanteur Invisible, directed by Hannah van Tassel.
The score (which makes beautiful, creative and prominent use of the blockflutes) won Nico Maas the Keep an Eye Filmscore Award 2019. The poetic documentary about the intangible mistral, which blows across the French Provence some 130 days a year, was made in collaboration with the Dutch public broadcaster NTR.

The whole Un Chanteur Invisible is streaming on the website of the Netherlands Film Academy and on Cinetree (trailer below).
