  • Screen Play – Christian Marclay

    – performance –

    Screen Play (2005) premiered in the Performa biennial in New York, is inspired by the tradition of graphic scores – expanding it to include moving images and digital graphical elements that can function as signs suggesting emotions, energy, rhythm, pitch, volume and duration.
    Three different musical groups are invited, one after the other, to produce a live performance and improvisation based on the “score” – the projected fi lm – enabling the general public to observe the musical process implied in each of the three soundtracks thereby created.

    Group I
    Nuno Rebelo – guitar
    Marco Franco – drums
    João Paulo Feliciano – organ
    Rafael Toral – modular synthesizer and electronica

    Group II
    João Martins – saxophones and home-made electro-acustic instruments
    Gustavo Costa – percussion and electronica
    Jonathan Saldanha – electronica

The event will coincide with the Paul Chan exhibition at the Serpentine and will include an afternoon ‘doubt surgery’ where visitors to the gallery can air their doubts and add them to the collection.
