Research Pavilion: Blaha Lujza Tér

Keskiviikko, kesäkuu 14, 2017 - 10:30 - 17:00
Sala del Camino, Venice
Research Pavilion

Blaha Lujza Tér is a piece of music composed by Johan Jutterström for and with Jennifer Torrence as part of the research project “Ng revisited”. With the piece, Jutterström and Torrence investigate the musician’s condition, the relationship between music and choreography, and music and space.

The same music material is performed twice in two extreme proximities to the audience: once far away and once very close. They also question if the digital space that the internet provided could be considered a third proximity. What would this mean for the piece?

The artists invite the audience to hear the piece from different distances and to discuss the intricacies of a live performance and a digital representation.
