This short movie follows an imaginary day in the life of experimental musician Mazen Kerbaj. In more than 15 apparitions, Kerbaj delves in activities as varied as sleeping, talking, praying, playing, or fighting, sometimes alone and sometimes with himself. The result is an accurate yet amusing self-portrait, exploring both the unique music practice of the artist and his humoristic approach to megalomania.
The short trailer and the film about the making of the commission will be available here as part of the Counterflows Archive, as will his interview with himself and other various content from the project.

The Making of Mazen Kerbaj – The Musical
A video interview with Mazen Kerbaj, by Mazen Kerbaj. In keeping with Mazen’s approach to his whole commission for Couterflows At Home, ‘Mazen Kerbaj – The Musical’, Mazen has produced a novel and creative interpretation of the idea of an interview. Is this megalomania or genius? Only Mazen himself can answer.
