Music Factory

Dir: Alf Martin Løvvold, Cina Espejord
Length: 08:53
Norway – 2022

In The Music Factory, we meet Herbert, who has synesthesia; a cross-sensory condition that makes him see shapes and colours when he hears sound and music, and we are presented with the story of how he found his way to the music factory. During his infanthood music, colors, and shapes all came together in a pure joyful synthesis, but when he gets older his synesthesia turns into a distraction with catastrophic results. At a low point in the film, the sound of a beautiful violin brings him out his sadness, and he follows the trails of synesthesia and discovers the music factory. He sneaks in, and is taken on a journey through the factory. In the grand finale, Herbert finds out he is capable of controlling the colors and shapes, and he brings the synesthesia down, shapes it, and throws it back up in the air. All in harmony with the music created by a full philharmonic orchestra. In the end, Herbert gets a job as head of R&D at the music factory and the film ends with him working his way through the factory.
