Video designer and director Tal Rosner works closely with musicians and theatre makers, combining multiple layers of sound and visuals to create a new language of classical/contemporary video installations and live performances. In 2017, Rosner was commissioned to create new visual interpretations for Steve Reich's 1981 minimalist masterpiece Tehillim (Psalms) by London's Barbican Centre and for Olga Neuwirth's Disenchanted Island by IRCAM and Centre Pompidou.
Rosner’s other work includes 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; Chronograph (2011), a site-specific digital art mural in collaboration with fellow artist Casey Reas, which inaugurated the New World Symphony building designed by Frank Gehry and has been screened daily on its 7,000-square-foot exterior projection wall ever since; 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.
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, where he is also an associate artist, and co-created 8 Minutes (2017-18), an hour-long multimedia dance piece, with choreographer Alexander Whitley and composer Daniel Wohl for Sadler's Wells.
He has most recently designed the video content for Jessie Ware's live tour, and created a newly commissioned video interpretation of Esa-Pekka Salonen's Foreign Bodies for the New York Philharmonic (June 2018). In 2019 he will co-direct a newly commissioned staging of Wagner's Die Walküre at Opéra National de Bordeaux, in collaboration with Julia Burbach.
In 2008 Rosner won the BAFTA for Best Title Sequence for the Channel 4 television series Skins. He was born in Jerusalem and now lives and works in London.
