SYMPHONY IN D

Screening

03/05/2017 4:00pm

This soaring documentary from Dennis Scholl and Miami native Marlon Johnson—whose Deep City: The Birth of the Miami Sound world premiered at the Festival in 2014—tracks the highly unusual and inspired collaboration between Pulitzer Prize-nominated musician Tod Machover and the people of Detroit.
Machover received over 15,000 individual contributions; bars of music, but also field recordings capturing the everyday sounds of the city. Over 13 months Machover assembles the material and shapes it into a symphony for the Motor City, to be performed by the Detroit Symphony Orchestra, conducted by Leonard Slatkin and accompanied by Detroit citizens. Symphony in D is the awe-inspiring profile of this unique celebration of a great American metropolis.
