This video shows a journey aboard one of San Francisco’s Cable Cars earlier this month while visiting the city. The route the tram(cable car) follows is Powell- Hyde’s. Then the camera walks along the streets of downtown San Francisco(close to Union Square) observing different things happening at the same time. All the music in this video clip is by the brilliant Pianist and composer Fabrizio Paterlini based in Mantova, Italy(in the following order):
Lontana, dolcemente sospesa (Lunchtray remix)
Colori
Soffia la notte
Viandanze (re-imagined)

By Kinan Faham

the Silent Camera is Kinan Faham's photography moniker. Kinan is a software guy with interests in visual and sonic arts. Through photography and video, he captures the extraordinary in the ordinary. Kinan was born in the oldest continually inhabited city in the world and moved to the states for graduate school. For him, art is a hobby that also forms an essential, inseparable part of his being.. The inspiration for the Silent Camera name came from contemporary composers Arvo Part and John Luther Adams whose compositions defy complex structures in favor of meditative voices and can be linked to space/visual stimuli.
