The Video: Excerpt of the visual improvisation by Kiritan Flux and Tlalit Segal Raayoni for a special concert event. The used material consisted only of macrovideography of the stage and instruments of the musicians shot during the rehearsals the day before by Tlalit. This base material was modified and mixed live by Flux and masked with music inspired live drawings by Tlalit (made with Alchemy).
The Event: The world of contemporary music celebrated the 90th birthday of Hungarian composer György Kurtág. Interpreting this influential oeuvre of contemporary classical music, CHB dedicated a special event to Kurtág on 8 March 2016, presenting two concerts. One of them was a live concert of The Spontaneous Arkestra led by the legendary fusion musician, composer and conceptualist Jean-Paul Bourelly through the use of Conduction to command the orchestra and reflect on Kurtág’s works. By its nature, Conduction method liberates both conductor and musicians from the traditional boundaries of musical rules, habits and conventions, making the collaboration more spontaneous and surprising the audience with unexpected turns.
