short experimental musical film.

The Suns activity is indicated by small spots on it's surface.
In 2009 the dissappearence of sunspots for three years baffled scientists worldwide.
Inspired by real images of the Sun, Enrique Mendoza composed an acousmatic piece based on the Sun's massive power, using a piano. Johannes Hogebrink visualized the music, using scientific imagery shot by satellites aswell as telescopes around the globe.. The Silence of the Sun transmits a mixture of incomprehensibility and fascination for our star.
