Between Two Sounds: A multimedia event with music, discussion, and graphic novel on the life of Arvo Pärt

Joonas Sildre is a brilliant comic artist from Estonia. As well as authoring and illustrating many children’s books and teaching comic art, he spent five years researching, writing, and drawing Kahe heli vahel (Between Two Sounds), a biographical graphic novel that imaginatively reveals Pärt’s musical and personal development from childhood up to 1980 when his family was forced to leave Estonia.

This session explores Joonas’s work, through discussion with the artist, and a presentation of images from Between Two Sounds, accompanied by pianist Lucie Tenet performing Pärt’s Für Alina and Partita. A musical, visual and intellectual feast!
