Elpa80: Film by Massimo Ruberti — Autour de la Lune
Massimo Ruberti is back to present again his work «Autour de la Lune» in the occasion of a short film (about twenty minutes, released once again by the netlabel Elpamusic), to tell the story of three astronauts and their journey to the Moon.
The small film consists of three video clips composed of static animation and shadow theater. The exciting sequences of images is perfectly accompanied by the music. The electronic sounds are taken from the record «Autour de la Lune» (Elpa57). The drawings are of the American artist David Brunell Brutman while the theater has been designed and animated by Massimo Ruberti. Everything is inspired by the homonymous book of Jules Verne ‘»Around the Moon», where three astronauts try to reach the moon, shot from a huge cannon aboard a bullet-shaped starship.
«Autour de la Lune» is a double concept album, based on the novel by Jules Verne. Instrumental acoustic pieces, contaminated with electronics noises, and vice versa. Conceived as a soundtrack for a never made movie. Poignant and space atmospheres, a long journey to the Moon and back.
