Sonic genius Nicolas Jaar is always finding inventive new avenues in which to showcase his musical talents. And in his latest endeavor, he’s created his own soundtrack to the 1968 Soviet experimental film The Color Of Pomegranates. Directed by Armenian director Sergei Parajanov, the film has been described as a, “cine-poem of the life of the 18th-century Armenian/Georgian poet and singer Sayat-Nova…Michelangelo Antonioni put it simply: ‘Parajanov’s Color of Pomegranates is of a stunningly perfect beauty.’”
