MUSICA SURFICA is a documentary that follows one man's creative journey. Richard Tognetti, the Artistic Director of the Australian Chamber Orchestra, is a world-renowned violinist and a life-long surfer. He teams up with surfing virtuoso Derek Hynd to bring together a unique gathering of classical musicians and top surfers on remote King Island, as they explore new boundaries in experimental surfing, riding surfboard without fins.
It's an experiment that demands fresh thinking, or ancient methods to keep control... with an imperative to take risks in order to explore and develop new ideas... in surfing, music and in life.
The documentary features surfers riding radically-designed unfinned surfboards and traditional boards based on 300-year old Hawaiian designs, including a massive 16 foot Alaia.
The soundtrack features outstanding performances by Richard Tognetti and the Australian Chamber Orchestra. Richard performs on the Guarneri del Gesu "Carrodus" Violin, crafted in 1743 and conservatively valued at $A 10 million.
Musica Surfica has won awards for best film at festivals around the world. Click here for more information.
