The scenes in The Three Tales sparked my curiosity as I watched the film. I most love the orchestrated music in this piece. “The Hindenburg has gone” is an interesting line as the acappella voices sing “I couldn’t understand.” The innovative film predicts the future of the twentieth century technological age in our world and recaps the past Hindenburg tragedy. I like the interplay of text on the screen with loud music, puzzle piece with static noise, and blimp crossing the towers.
The film begins with a flashing headline as each word was presented across the screen with the intense beat of the drum. The cinematic effects as the figures built the bridge and geometric shadows added an artistic dimension to the film. The text with words including “technical matter” integrated into a mix of other words stylistically arranged were played with the accent of the music. The first tale has photographic footage of the atrocity in history that captures a burning ship with people running to escape the fire. The second tale presents a war scene with explosions and gives insight to two stories of the creation of humans. In later scenes, the intricate design of the film gets more advanced technologically with computer-generated effects that work together to produce the motion picture.
The powerful music impacts the audience as off-putting music that gives them anxiety. I personally liked this music because it was unlike anything I have ever heard before. The experimental film shows originality in the music that gives a new dynamic to the unique sound from the way I have heard it produced by musicians. I was shocked by the static noise and voices during the presentation that went along with the artistic layout of the film. When the puzzle pieces appear on the screen, the segment sounded unusual and out of place because it did not belong with the strong orchestra music carried along the other artistic images. Nevertheless, the lasting resonance of sound that I listened to unveils the brilliance of the film as the music was composed beautifully.
In one of the tales, the robot symbolizes a new voice of modern society. However, I did not like the machine that appeared on screen because I thought it was mocking our generation. In contrast, I prefer to hear the infinitely montage of survivors’ voices, string-quartet figures, and the sounds of trains. I learned about the Hindenburg tragedy as the burns and crashes of the ship reveal a shocking abstraction of fire. The black-and-white film made the motion picture look set in the olden days and the artistic layout of each scene added some mix. The fragments pieced together in each tale show a glimpse of the past Hindenburg disaster and the world’s future.
Overall, the high-tech film with voices, instruments, recordings, and video images conjured up an amazing invention. The faint echo of the title throughout the film mourns the catastrophe of Hindenburg. It was interesting and memorable to watch because the music creates a melody and rhythm built along with a jumble of prose. The mix of voices and orchestrated music serves as a reminder of the terrors of our world and gives the audience a feeling that compels them to the film.
