A Glimpse From Silence
11 December 2015 | by (Mexico) – See all my reviews

The films takes us to a peculiar world and vision of sound from Nick Koenig's perspective. It takes us into his world and his own usage of sound in order to create his unique and amazing songs.

I was very inspired after watching it!. The film is entertaining with great picture, score and story telling. I even discovered artists that have collaborated with Nick that resonated with me as well. The film is definitely worth watching. It shares new visions and approaches towards things that we take from granted or even ignored at some point, sharing the uniqueness and beauty of everything around us.

It also shares some parts of Nick's everyday life. Which is great! because it takes us deeper into the story and his sources of inspiration.

Congrats to all the team involved in this documentary!
