Tuesday, 11.03., 7 p.m.
Glenn Gould: The Idea of North
Variations on Glenn Gould, 1969, Director: Perry Rosemond
The Idea of North, 1970, Director: Judith Pearlman
Introduction Stefan Iglhaut, cultural scientist and curator, Berlin

The Idea of North is the title of the first part of Glenn Gould’s “oral tone poem” Solitude Trilogy, a groundbreaking radio broadcast. Gould arranged the voices of five different narrators as a fugue-like composition, weaving together various tales about, and thoughts on the North. Variations on Glenn Gould follows the artist as he takes a walk near Wawa, north of Toronto; Judith Pearlman’s TV documentary visualizes Gould’s radio masterpiece.
