"Making Making Mirrors"

Another form of short film is the home-made documentary. This one deals with a musician putting together an album of experimental music. It is a gentle, but compelling experience. On the surface, the film is about finding beauty in old items; underneath, it's about family and friendship. The music is different: lyrical, soothing, exotic.

Wally de Backer (Gotye) is a Belgian-Australian, multi-instrumental musician and singer-songwriter who records, tours, performs, makes short films, and provides music for TV and movies. And makes his own 'virtual' instruments. Digital autoharp, for example.

This clip is called "Making Making Mirrors." Enjoy. Oh, and turn the volume up...
