This was fucking great, evolving in conceptual complexity as it clicked and sparked along until it made me smile and get super excited. Love the way he uses the rhythms of people's movement to essentially make visibly tangible music, with the actual aural soundtrack being secondary to the beat of his subjects. He reminds you that editing is an art in itself, a single cut can be its own masterpiece. Scorsese describes editing as 'the art of the third shot' where a cut places in the viewer's mind a third image that links the two you are shown. Here Greenaway uses it to create a visual soundtrack that makes ingenious use of various movements, most brilliantly the contrast of foreground and background - creaks and screams in the soundtrack happen when someone walks past the foreground of the frame, disrupting the sounds and melodies of the image, scraping a chord.
But it's music all the same.
