In Seven Days, Piano Concerto with Moving Image, is a multi-media piece for piano, orchestra and six video screens, which follows the Genesis tale of creation. The piece was commissioned by the Royal Festival Hall (then undergoing a massive regeneration) and the Walt Disney Concert Hall in LA, and the source material was footage and stills of these two buildings. The material was then rendered into complex narrative-responsive animations that introduce new figurative forms in synch with the orchestration.
In collaboration with composer Thomas Adès.
Format: 6 synchronised DV Channels or 1 HD (split-screen), 29 min.
Design, direction and animation: Tal Rosner.
Commissioned by the Southbank Centre London and the Los Angeles Philharmonic, UK-USA 2008.
