Notes

  • Program notes: 

    Here and Now: Gotham owes its existence in the paintings of Hieronymus Bosch. The Garden of Earthly Delights triptych, sublime but scary, is a mirror of Christian morality in the Middle Ages. The music responds to the Inferno’s universe of H. Bosch by creating cinematic sounds at the same time familiar, strange and appealing, modern, unusual and enticing. A euphoric and frightening sound universe. In Gotham, the city-machine cuts human flesh in blood. The astronauts have hands of branches. The animals are skiing. People get crushed under huge ears. The end: a man crucified on harp.

  • Technical specs: 

    Equipment to perform the work: laptop, audio card, sound reinforcement system.
