GEORGE CRUMB: VOICE OF THE WHALE REVIEWED

“Voice of the Whale” is Robert Mugge covering avant-garde composer George Crumb. Originally created for PBS in 1976, the film celebrates its 40th while looking amazing. The full performance of Voice of the Whale is staged with three masked performers and Mugge gives us a bit of insight into Crumb’s process. Still, it’s a rather short documentary about a composer who loves the weird. Mugge remains the master music documentarian, but even he has a hard time pulling a solid approach out of what Crumb offers. So, over the 54 minute runtime, Mugge uses colors to split the difference between Crumb as a person and as a composer. While novel for 1976, it feels a little played out now.
