In this scene (featuring an accordionist) he explains that he used ‘Cubism’s use of multi-level space, which was to some extent why I transferred it to cinema’. 60 It is remarkable that both artists found a solution to their formal problems by the use of counterpoint, and in particular fugue. Richter and Eggeling’s meetings with the composer Busoni appear to have had a decisive effect in this respect. Eisenstein’s idea of using counterpoint, and specifically fugue, came from an equally surprising origin: his meetings with a different sort of musician, James Joyce, in Paris in 1930.

93 This approach provides an aspect of fugue which relates it to drama, thereby appealing to the humanistic and socially-conscious aspects of Eisenstein’s work in cinema. It also relates to providing a clear narrative, without redundancy, and an expressive content which for him was always of central importance.
