Place: November Music - International Festival for Contemporary Music, ’s-Hertogenbosch
SCENATET creates an original reinterpretation of the classic portrait concert with the innovative concept ‘Documentary Concert’. The idea is invented and developed by the filmmaker Michael Madsen (‘Into Eternity’, 2009) and artist Anna Berit Asp Christensen. Documentary Concert #1 is performed at November Music 2013.
The starting point is a silent film depiction of composer Bent Sørensen’s daily life between the coffee machine, the piano and the computer! SCENATET is accompanying these everyday situations with a live performance of Sørensen’s masterpieces of chamber works. The result is a crackling contrasting clash between picture and sound, reality and abstraction, the composers homely idyll and modernist science fiction.
