    In November 2019, Charles Lloyd made his highly acclaimed debut at the Pierre Boulez Saal. He was supposed to return for two concerts in December 2020 that had to be canceled because of the Covid-19 pandemic. Commissioned by the Pierre Boulez Saal, Lloyd’s wife, painter and video artist Dorothy Darr, set about creating a film portrait of the musician, documenting the time spent in isolation at the couple’s home in Santa Barbara, California. The project was initiated by Piotr Turkiewicz, who has closely worked with both Charles Lloyd and Dorothy Darr over the years and who is the Pierre Boulez Saal’s curator for improvised music and jazz. Shot over the course of several months using iPhone and Lumix cameras as well as a portable Zoom recorder, the film provides rare and intimate insights into the artistry of Charles Lloyd—including his reflections on solitude, resistance, social injustice, and his own ancestry, as well as a number of solo performances.

    Explore the music of Charles Lloyd in our specially curated playlist, featuring a selection of tracks hand-picked by the artist and his wife, Dorothy Darr.
