Lebanese artist, musician, filmmaker and radio presenter Gheith Al-Amine takes us on a tour of his home-studio in Beirut, Lebanon. He talks about his latest video work which was shown at the 2014 Berlinale. It is a performative audio-visual tribute to Egyptian composer and singer Sheikh Imam, performed with a piano-forte, a smartphone, an old bulb TV, and a few lines written on two masking-tape strips, and is shot in one continuous sequence. Al-Amine also explains the vision for his daily Jazz program on the Lebanese Radio Service and shows us his unique collection of music instruments and some of his earlier projects.
Amira El Masry translated the interview to English.
