TAPECODE 558.10

Three video 'portraits' of three cities: New York, USA, city of persistence and perseverance; Rome, Italy,city of light; Jakarta, Indonesia, city of patient smiles. In each tape one architectural feature and one segment of the population are featured: New York's wooden water towers and old ladies; Rome's Vatican statues and nuns; Jakarta's walls and young men. Each tape and the movement of each city is set next to a piece of music; "New York Counter point" by Steve Reich, "Skyling" and "in Paradisum, part 4" by Michael J. Baker (Rome), and "Music for Mallet Instruments" by Steve Reich (Jakarta). The three tapes are independent of each other and can be seen separately.

Jakarta: Smiling faces and friendly waves belie the fact of walls in this huge (15 million) city of contrasts.
