On Giacometti

On the 17th of February, Hania Rani released her new soundtrack to the documentary “I Giacometti” directed by Susanna Fanzun, now available on streaming and download platforms.

Recorded and shot in the Giacometti Atelier in Stampa, Switzerland, Hania Rani was invited by the director Susanna Fanzun to compose a selection of delicate recordings

In Hania’s own words:

“When I was asked to compose a soundtrack for a movie about the family of Giacometti I didn’t think twice. Alberto Giacometti, a Swiss artist, who worked mainly as painter and sculptor has been one of my favourite artists for a long time. His individual style, aesthetics and the character of his creative process is still fascinating to me on many levels, so being able to dive even deeper into his universe, getting to know not only him but also his family was an opportunity that I couldn’t miss.

Living surrounded by mountains makes you change the perspective and understanding of scale as Alberto Giacometti once famously wrote in a letter. It gives an impression that things that are actually far away, like mountains, are close and the other ones that are not so far away, like people, seem small, watched from a distance. You feel like touching the mountain top with your finger could be as easy as touching the tip of your nose. The snow additionally protects the whole area from the noise, each sound lands softly on the ground accompanied by echoes of immeasurable space.”
