Blas Gimeno Ribelles/Giovanni Ceccarelli
Blas Gimeno Ribelles – images, film editing, and direction
Giovanni Ceccarelli – piano
Blas Gimeno Ribelles and Giovanni Ceccarelli start their collaboration with the video “Hiver” (2008): Gimeno’s visual work is inspired by Ceccarelli’s music.
Their second video, “Duo à Beyrouth” (2014) is a duo collaboration from the start: first Gimeno Ribelles filming on a tennis court in Beirut, then Ceccarelli composing and overdubbing piano music for it.
Their third work is a video entitled “Beyrouth” (2014): destruction and construction in the Lebanese capital.
Blas is invited to participe to Giovanni’s latest album, “Mare Calmo”, by directing two short films on the pianist’s compositions “Mare Calmo” and “Continuum”. The two films are part of the album’s DVD.
