About A Grammar for Listening (2009, UK, 56 minutes):
Luke Fowler’s film cycle A Grammar for Listening (parts 1-3) is an attempt to create a meaningful dialogue between looking and listening. Working with three different sound artists, Fowler’s film allows us to suspend the usual order of things in motion pictures, which gives the eye primacy and asks the ear to follow along, The various soundscapes in A Grammar for Listening propose a new way of hearing the everyday, and together with Fowler’s delicate 16mm images, create an open space for the ear and the eye to collaborate.
