Big Giant Wave is an ode to music, this invisible abstract and fleeting sequence of sounds that creates in the brain the same reaction as chocolate, sex, or drugs. Conceived as a cinematographic wave, Big Giant Wave takes us from Canada to Italy via Sweden, Mexico, and the American West Coast to meet fascinating scientists and artists who, from their various backgrounds, illustrate our essential connection with rhythm, music, our planet, the brain, daily lives, and our collective humanity.


Big Giant Wave est une ode à la musique, cette séquence de sons abstraite, immatérielle et invisible qui provoque dans le cerveau la même réaction que le chocolat, le sexe ou la drogue. Conçu comme une vague cinématographique, ce documentaire nous amène de Montréal à Crémone en Italie en passant par la Suède, le Mexique et la côte ouest américaine pour y rencontrer des scientifiques et des artistes fascinants qui, depuis leurs divers horizons, illustrent le lien essentiel entre le rythme, la mélodie, notre planète, le cerveau, la vie quotidienne et notre humanité collective.
