GELBART: The Portal, Finally

Gelbart doesn’t just bring music to the stage, but pushes open the gate to other worlds. In his composition The Portal, Finally he undertakes a sound experiment with influences from avant-garde jazz, soundtracks of early science fiction films and works of classical modernism. The Portal, Finally asks whether first contact with another universe can happen this very evening. The composer and media artist gathers a 14-piece ensemble with instruments such as harp, harpsichord and electronics under a large triangle. This is not meant to represent the titular portal, but to function as one. Because in view of a potentially infinite number of parallel universes, the transition into one of them is within the realm of possibility. If another world emerges at the end of the performance, the experiment will have succeeded.
