Released in 1968, The Color of Pomegranates is a startling cinematic work that attempts to tell the story of Sayat-Nova, an artist from Armenia whose work influenced the worlds of romantic poetry and classical music. But it is hardly your traditional biopic, as it uses no dialogue, puts Sayat-Nova's words onscreen to be read rather than heard, and punctuates each scene with splashes of bright primary colors. It's the perfect candidate, then, for a live soundtrack as part of Holocene's ongoing Fin de Cinema series. Tonight the music will be provided by Honey Owens' multi-faceted project Valet; Dreamboat, the haunting collaboration between Golden Retriever and guitarist Ilyas Ahmed; and the psych guitar instrumentals of Dewey Mahood's new undertaking, Spectrum Control.
