The Toronto Film Festival, Sir Salman Rushdie and Glockabelle

Glockabelle was asked to demonstrate her unique glockenspiel thimble technique on the short film “Concerning the Bodyguard” by Kasra Farahani, narrated by Salman Rushdie. Farahani explains, “When I came across Annabelle’s piece it took me a moment to realize that the beautiful piece I was hearing was in fact a Satie piece that I was actually quite familiar with. Her lovely rendition is at once austere and flourished, as well as strange and familiar. Most importantly, it was the elegance of her piece that made me seek her out and ask to use her music in my film.” You can see the trailer for "Concerning the Bodyguard" below. It is an Official Selection for the 2015 Toronto International Film Festival and will be shown this September.
