Experience classical music as you’ve never ‘seen’ it before. Move freely around the 50+ musicians of a philharmonic orchestra listening to the most amazing loved-themed masterpieces in one of London’s most recognisable Landmarks.
This is what Chrom-Art proposes as part of #TRIBE17 International Art Festival: ‘Love in the city’ concert is an open-air afternoon performance by Orchestra of the City with a synaesthetic screening by 2015 Lumen Prize finalist David Moraton. The concert will take place on Saturday 14 October 4pm at OXO Tower Courtyard, London.
‘Love’ and it manifestations is this year’s theme at the capital’s newest art festival, so Orchestra of the City, London’s leading non-professional ensemble which has been increasingly recognised for its pioneering and inclusive concert series, presents a programme that incorporates three of the greatest musico-dramatic works about love, led by musical director Chris Hopkins: Saint Saens ‘Danse Bacchanale’ from Samson and Delilah, Tchaikovsky’s Romeo and Juliet Fantasy Overture and Wagner’s ‘Prelude’ and ‘Liebestod’ from Tristan und Isolde.
The orchestra will be accompanied by the digital art of David Moraton’s whose work is a faithful visual reflection of classical music. He was born with a perceptual condition called synaesthesia which triggers him seeing colours in his mind responding to sounds. He has turned this into art by projecting this very personal chromatic experience of music and sound. Moraton’s commercial work in special FX features in a long list of blockbuster movies including the Terminator and Mission Impossible sagas.
The immersive nature of the performance is designed for most people to stand and move freely around the orchestra members in what will undoubtedly be a one-of-a-kind experience.
