Presque Rien avec Luc Ferrari (Almost Nothing with Luc Ferrari) – follows the path through electronic as well as instrumental and orchestral music of this prolific and multifaceted composer. The documentary, filmed in the last decade of Ferrari’s life traces his history, and offers insight on many of his known scores beginning with early compositions such as Suite Hétéroclite pour piano (Heterogeneous Suite for Piano); Etude aux accidents (Study with Accidents) and Etude aux sons tendus (Study for Stretched Sounds), touching on critical works including Hétérozygote, Presque Rien no. 1 and no. 2, as well as his later works.
