The universe of Shelter evokes the power and the threat of nature, the promise of expanding the boundaries contained within the structure of a new home, the pure aesthetic beauty of houseplants, the sweet architecture of sound and the apprehensive vulnerability that exists even in the safety of sleep. A profound and moving reflection on the meaning of having a shelter with music performed by the founders of the New York group Bang on a Can. The beautiful images of Shelter, Bill Morrison’s film with music by David Lang, Michael Gordon and Julia Wolfe, is only comparable to the magic of the music, the energy of the rhythm and the purity of the vocal writing.
