SF Theatrical Premiere!
TRIMPIN: the sound of invention
Dir. Peter Esmonde US 2009
A hit at South by Southwest, Silverdocs, London, and other film fests worldwide, TRIMPIN: the sound of invention is a mind-opening trip through the wild musical and kinetic world of a creative genius. Artist/ inventor/ composer Trimpin constructs a 60-foot tower of more than 500 self-tuning electric guitars, designs a huge marimba ensemble that converts earthquake data into music, puts toy and homemade instruments into the hands of San Francisco's Kronos Quartet . . . and that's just for starters. A celebration of musical imagination, TRIMPIN will delight anyone interested in the mysteries, pitfalls, and sheer joys of creative experiment. Open your ears and your mind will follow! (79m)

Dir. Peter Esmonde will be present at both screenings on Friday.
Co-presented by the Exploratorium
