“Really can’t think of many other 80 year old guitarists whose music still feels somehow relevant thru it’s sheer, expressive abstraction nowadays. And this recording proves; Mike Cooper is pretty special.” – Boomkat Review of Reluctant Swimmer/Virtual Surfer
L’ATTESO RITORNO DI MIKE COOPER Al DETOUR
A PAGE OF MADNESS 狂った一頁
Japan 1926. 70′, versione originale muta
ENG. A man takes a job as a janitor at a mental asylum in order to be near his wife. Although his wife suffers genuine mental anguish, the man believes he can rescue her, but his attempt to break her out one night backfires when she panics. After she returns to her room, the husband again makes plans to try to take her out, only to be interrupted in the attempt by a doctor and several attendants, whom he attacks and believes he has killed.
Believed lost for forty-five years, the film was found by chance by the director himself and was released in 1971. It does not contain intertitles because Japanese cinema screenings in the 1920s required the presence of a narrator in the cinema, and a third of its original 1926 version is missing. The film is considered a masterpiece of the Japanese cinematographic avant-garde of the first half of the twentieth century.
Mike Cooper is an English guitarist and singer-songwriter. Initially coming to attention as a country blues performer, his later work also straddles jazz, Polynesian, ambient, and various experimental and improvisational styles.
