Mazen Kerbaj + Splitter Orchester

Synesthesia is a live graphic score created and interpreted in real-time by an improvising ensemble. In this new concept, Mazen Kerbaj acts both as the conductor of the ensemble and the director of a movie in the making; the images he produces on his glass table are projected on a large screen for the audience, and on smaller screens for the musicians who use them as material and indications to be interpreted instantaneously. The musicians react to the images, and the conductor reacts to the music in return, each side feeding on the other with no defined hierarchy. The images do not illustrate the music, nor does the music accompany the images; they rather flow together in an organic way. The resulting experience is quite unique for the audience; they can literally see the sound and hear the images of a movie that is made in real-time on stage.
Synesthesia is Kerbaj’s take on various projects from the 20th century’s music and film traditions, including Cornelius Cardew’s Treatise, Butch Morris’ conductions, graphic scores, free improvised music, live music for early silent movies, avant-garde and experimental films, video art…
