Sónar+D collaborates in the new staging of the most recent work of Christian Marclay, Investigations (2018), which will take place on 19 July at Capella MACBA. “Investigations” reflects Marclay's interest in photography and the non-traditional use of classical instruments. This score was made from a collection of 100 found and cropped images of hands playing the piano. The score is to be interpreted by 10 pianists who are asked to decipher the sound made when the photograph was taken and notate the results of their investigation. Some of the pianists confirmed are Carles Viarnès, Haize Lizarazu, Philippe, and Steve Beresford, who has commented on the work: “when we are playing but also looking at pictures or printed words or mutated music notation, perhaps we engage bits of our brains usually not involved in playing music… Christian’s scores get us playing things we would never have thought of.”
Adress: Carrer dels Àngels , 7 08001 Barcelona.
Due to limited capacity of the venue, this concert requires a separate ticket to attend.
