A video interpretation of Benjamin Britten’s Four Sea Interludes, commissioned by four leading American orchestras to celebrate the composer’s centenary. In the piece, four video/animation scenarios correspond to the four movements, which, in turn, are inspired by one of the four commissioning cities. Following the conductor as the orchestra plays, the visuals not only reflect rhythm changes and orchestration within the music, but also the rhythms of the panoramas and architectural details of the cities.
Format: 5 synchronised channels (NWS acoustic sails) or 1 HD, approx. 17 min.
Design, direction and animation: Tal Rosner.
Commissioned by the New World Symphony Miami, the Philadelphia Orchestra, the San Francisco Symphony and the Los Angeles Philharmonic, USA 2013-14.
