Nicolas Jaar Creates Soundtrack to Sergei Parajanov's "The Color of Pomegranates" 1969

Mysterious are the ways of God especially when it comes to reveal a modern artist doing a cover work on another talent that passed away many years ago. The acclaimed New York-based musician Nicolas Jaar has uploaded a Soviet avant-garde film from 1969, called “The Color Of Pomegranates”, created by surrealistic director Sergei Parajanov (1924-1990) to Youtube along with his own original score. “The Color Of Pomegranates” is a biography of the Armenian ashug Sayat-Nova (King of Song) that attempts to reveal the poet's life visually and poetically rather than literally. Nicolas Jaar leveled up the whole story to the new surreal level by reworking the orginal sound with his soundtrack 'Pomegranates' (2015).BUT Nicolas is not the first to take over the original score, famous (by Matrix OST) musicians Juno Reactor did this a year ago. So get your extra hour of awesome visual and sound overdose here and below
