The Bandwagon #2

Shadows of the Unseen I

A while ago, Sabzian was invited by the Belgian music label STROOM to contribute to their radio show at The Word Radio. The result, which you can find here, was a mix of film excerpts, dialogues, scores and songs, a two-hour encounter with sounds, thoughts and filmic worlds.

With no films currently screening in cinemas, the idea ripened to start an irregular series of film-related mixes. This series was baptized The Bandwagon after Vincente Minnelli's 1953 eponymous masterpiece. The first contribution, and thus second episode of The Bandwagon, is titled ‘Shadows from the Unseen I’: an avant-garde set compiled by Courtisane’s Stoffel Debuysere.

The Bandwagon is an irregular series of film-related mixes, hosted by Sabzian. These shows are brought together under the name “The Bandwagon,” after Vincente Minnelli’s 1953 eponymous masterpiece. The idea is to share journeys through film excerpts, dialogues, scores and songs, each instalment a filmic encounter with sounds, thoughts and worlds.
