Musica Falsa et Ficta: More variations on Goldberg
concert / Vážna hudba nevážne
Wednesday 23. May 2012, 8pm
Would Bach be an improvizing noiser today? Concert of an international choir, an improvising orchestra and a turntablist processes and interprets Goldberg´s variations. The piece is accepted but the open for comments. Is it going to be punky?
The main idea of this performance is to synthetize contemporary improvisational techniques in all levels of playing – from the conductor through the players, combinations of vocals, instruments, electronics up to “turntablist”. All the musicians have precisely specificated techniques and methods of performing. The interpretation is open to spontanious and intuitive improvisation combined with fixation of particular models, added and graduated throught individual variations. Each player has his position in particular variations predefined, whereas the moment for solo in variations is defined by the conductor. The turntablist is a replacement for baroque basso acompagniato. By making scratches, remixing the piece, as well as changing various speeds of vinyls of original variations, he encourages the other musicians the imagination for characterizing given playing techniques.
