Five Fantasies (2019) is a series of short musical vignettes loosely inspired by the darkly comical films in Roy Andersson’s “Living Trilogy.” Each of the film’s scenes presents trivial everyday moments in a limited scope, often with exaggeratedly bland color palettes and mundane dialogue. One of Andersson’s scenes portrays the task of airline baggage check-in as a Sisyphean hurdle. We are presented on one hand with a wall of rigid and uninterested baggage clerks passively waiting for customers; and on the other, a horde of stressed passengers heaving stuffed suitcases, unable to get any closer to the baggage clerks despite their efforts. Likewise, each of the Five Fantasies acts as an imaginary scene of a trivial everyday event presented in a musical context. Five Fantasies was composed for Loadbang.
