O Gemer

Xabier Erkizia

O Gemer is an experimental film on the geographic and historical voyage of the peculiar sound of the so-called “Basque ox carts.” This sound, which could be heard in part of the Bay of Biscay until the 1960s, has now practically disappeared from the Iberian peninsula. This film by Spanish musician, sound artist, producer, and journalist Xabier Erkizia travels from the silence of the sound in our territory today, until its reappearance, following years of research, in the central area of Brazil. This particular screeching sound – albeit in tune – made by the cart when moving forward, questions our senses and our experience of what the world that we see sounds like. On the soundtrack, Julia Eckhardt’s interpretation of Eliane Radigue’s compositions are a recurring motif, alongside music composed by Erkizia himself.
