Video designer and director Tal Rosner works closely with musicians and theatre makers, combining multiple layers of sound and visuals to create experiential video installations and live performances.
In 2018, Rosner was commissioned by the New York Philharmonic to make a video interpretation of Esa-Pekka Salonen's Foreign Bodies, and by Nuit Blanche Toronto to collaborate with composer Christopher Mayo on a Lament, a large-scale public art installation.
Rosner’s other recent work includes videos for Steve Reich's 1981 minimalist masterpiece Tehillim (Psalms), commissioned by the Barbican Centre (2017); and for Olga Neuwirth's Disenchanted Island commissioned by IRCAM and Centre Pompidou (2017).
Orchestral work include Britten's Four Sea Interludes and Passacaglia (2013-16), commissioned by the New World Symphony, San Francisco Symphony, Los Angeles Philharmonic, Philadelphia Orchestra, and BBC Symphony Orchestra; and In Seven Days (Piano Concerto with Moving Image), a collaboration with Thomas Adès, commissioned by the Southbank Centre and the Los Angeles Philharmonic (2008), which was later performed with the New York Philharmonic, Tonhalle Zürich and Cologne Philharmonie.
Chronograph (2011), his site-specific digital art mural in collaboration with fellow artist Casey Reas, inaugurated the New World Symphony building in Miami Beach, designed by Frank Gehry, and has been screened daily on its 7,000-square-foot exterior projection wall ever since.
Theatre and dance credits include: Everyman (dir. Rufus Norris) and Husbands and Sons (dir. Marianne Elliott) at the National Theatre; You For Me For You (dir. Richard Twyman) and X (dir. Vicky Featherstone) at the Royal Court; The Most Incredible Thing (Pet Shop Boys, dir. Javier de Frutos) for Charlotte Ballet, North Carolina; and Les Enfants Terribles (Philip Glass, dir. Javier de Frutos) at the Royal Ballet.
Rosner co-designed Shopping and F'ing (dir. Sean Holmes) with long-term collaborator Jon Bausor for the Lyric Hammersmith (2016), and co-created 8 Minutes (2017), an hour-long multimedia dance piece, with choreographer Alexander Whitley and composer Daniel Wohl for Sadler's Wells.
His operatic directorial debut will take place in 2019 with a newly commissioned staging of Wagner's Die Walküre at Opéra National de Bordeaux, in collaboration with Julia Burbach.
In the commercial arena, he has most recently designed the video content for Louis Vuitton’s traveling exhibit Time Capsule, and the Rolling Stones’ No Filter European Tour (both produced by Treatment Studio).
Rosner won the BAFTA for Best Title Sequence (2008) for the Channel 4 television series Skins. He was born in Jerusalem and now lives and works in London.
