Tristes Deserts – A Robot’s Tale

A Robot´s Tale is the filmic-musical result from the baroque- and sci-fi-inspired collaboration between artist Stephanie Winter, tenor August Schram and electronic duo Austrian Apparel. Originating in the idea of an audiovisual realization of M.A. Charpentier’s lyrical song “Tristes Déserts” and motivated by the constant interaction of image and sound, a baroque-intergalactic musical short film was developed, in which the boundaries between human and machine, between baroque music and electronic sounds become blurred. In a time dominated by artificial intelligence, the extravagant musical short film tells the story of a lonely baroque robot in a battle between good and evil, recalling the magic of the early cinema.


The Short Film:



Susannah is living a typically quiet and dusty life in the suburbs with her husband Paul, when an unexpected visit from her son, Piers, surfaces a dark secret that has been brewing since he left the nest 15 years ago. As Susannah struggles to come to terms with Piers’ relationship with his new girlfriend, her typical mediocre existence is slowly stripped away to reveal an obsession that is anything but typical…or secret.
