For the Russian composer Alexander Scriabin (1872-1915), music and philosophical-aesthetic considerations formed an inseparable unity. He worked on his thoughts and ideas as well as on the sounds, and both found equal entry into his work. The synaesthete regarded life and creation as a kind of cosmic game and dreamed of an art that included all sensory experiences. In SKRJABIN, MEIN SPIEL (Scriabin, my play), filmmaker Silvina Buchbauer and Boris embark together on a search for a form of expression that fuses music, thought and visual language into a unity in the Scriabinian sense.

A cinematic homage to the 150th birthday of Alexander Scriabin this year.
