Ben Shemie – The Mirror + The Future Indefinite

par Luc Marchessault

Ben Shemie is a movie buff. We noticed that a long time ago. During Suuns’ mini-concert recorded at the Rouen Studio for Pan M 360, in the fall of 2021, Ben had integrated into their gig a sound extract from David Cronenberg’s Videodrome. In this case, the influence of Andrei Tarkovski’s Solaris permeates this long clip that includes two pieces. These songs, entitled “The Mirror” and “Future Indefinite,” are featured on Desiderata, Ben’s fourth solo album which is a collaboration with the Molinari Quartet. We’ll review it here shortly. Brandon Blommaert animated both songs and directed the video.
