Ian Rosenbaum performs in the film of Christopher Cerrone's MEMORY PALACE

Inspired by the ancient technique of memorization that helped orators remember lengthy speeches, Memory Palace is a composition for percussion and electronics, written by Christopher Cerrone and performed by Ian Rosenbaum. The film, directed and conceived by Mark DeChiazza, follows the percussionist’s journey through Cerrone’s musical memories. An empty theater becomes a gateway that can reveal vivid evocations of places Cerrone once visited—they still powerfully resonate into his present. These locations, ghosts of the past, comprise a sonic architecture of Cerrone's personal history.
