That Part Feeling
Arvo Part is the most performed living composer in the world and known for his minimalistic style that employs his self invented compostiional technique, tintinnabull. It is this harmonious, spiritual and minimalistic approach to music that forms the basis of “That Part Feeling” – a feeling of wholness, beauty and essence of being, embraced by millions of persons all around the world.
Part is considered often to be something of a recluse and his person and work has rarely been documneted on film, Nevertheless, it becomes clear in this documentary, that this characterization of Park as a hermit is somewhat inaccurate and above all, misses the point. We get to know Arvo Part as a composer combining and incredible sensitivity with humour and energy in his work. One of the dsicoveries of That Part Feeling is, that it’s not through words and his person that this great artist communicates, but simply through music. What he wants to saay and what he means is written in notes.
Part’s intense collaboration with the Cello Octet Amsterdam forms the heart of this documentary whcih sheds a bright light on Part’s universe. A universe not only inhabited by classical musicians like Tonu Kaljuste, Candida Thompson or Daniel Reuss, but also by choreographers lije Jiri Kylian, filmmakers like Alain Gomis and young techno musicians like Kara-Lis Coverdale. They are all looking for that Part feeling.
