Born in 1934 in Vienna, Austria, Peter Kubelka invents in the end of 50's the metric cinema, which is for cinema what is Schoenberg's serial music for music. His cinematographic work will influence, in a dicesive way, the american independent cinema of the 60's and 70's. In 1966, he directs Unsere Afrikareise, his ultimate masterpiece, the "first sonorous film" in the history of cinema.
Co-founder of The Anthology Archives in New York and of the Oesterreichisches Filmmuseum in Vienna, professor in the Staedelschule of Frankfurt, since 1980 Peter Kubelka conducts the chamber music orchestra Spatium Musicum and, for about a couple of decades, regularly gives conferences in Europe and in the United States about his vision of cinema, cuisine and music as forms of art.
Two unpublished interviews of Peter Kubelka and texts of Jon Kessler, Peter Kubelka, Christian Lebrat, Stefano Masi and Hermann Nitsch.
