“Dissonance” by German digital artist Till Nowak is an absolutely stunning short film that tells the story of a delusional, wild-haired pianist who believes himself to be a grand master performing on a giant round piano that revolves with the help of a tiny creature named Mr. Lori, who toils to keep the piano spinning. As the film moves from digital rendering to live action, the pianist’s reality is revealed.
DISSONANCE premiered at the 65th Berlin International Film Festival in February 2015. Till Nowak’s new shortfilm is a trip between fantasy and reality, between animation and live action drama. It tells the story of a psychotic street musician who has to leave his mental world to deal with the real one.
