This DVD is an unique combination of art and contemporary music. For this John Armleder, accompanied by Sylvie Fleury, filmed hot mud pools in Australia. The choreographer Hans van Manen proposed to have the bubbling mud sound covered by the shuffling sound of a ballet danser executing one of his dance pieces.
Each DVD of this Loud & Clear series is provided with a menu for single play and loop play. Therefore the film can also be played as a genuine piece of art on its own.
