About the Orchestra:The Ensemble Sospeso is an ensemble of soloists that perform contemporary music at the highest standard of an unusually diverse repertoire. Formed in 1995 by composers Kirk Noreen and Joshua Cody, Sospeso has been based in New York since 1999 and has given dozens of performances nationwide. A Sospeso performance might consist of two players or a chamber orchestra; of classical or electronic sounds, or both; of a work for six grand pianos or seven cellos; of a concerto for Theremin or Japanese koto.
"One of the 10 Best Films of the year... Guy Maddin's latest astonishment-- has ransacked film history and his own delirious imagination to create a work like none other: a silently shot film about a man who, on revisiting his childhood home, hurtles unto a past where orphan children, coy lesbian lovers, and a mad scientist converge." -- Manohla Dargis, The New York Times "Uproariously funny and surprisingly touching. A magical experience."
