The second concert of the musical repertoire of the Praktika Theater is conceived as a territory of cooperation between the laboratory of media experiments Curiosity Media Lab, headed by Yan Kalnberzin and Eugene Afonin, engaged in generative visual art and the ensemble of the Praktika Theater, with the support of the Moscow Conservatory Center for Electroacoustic Music.
The end point of our three month Touchdesigner course at 2019, which took place in collaboration with Moscow Conservatory’s Centre for Electroacoustic Music, autonomous department within the Moscow State P. I. Tchaikovsky Conservatory.
Just like last year, 2018, the course took place on the premises of the CEAMMC , which employs many amazing composers and performers of contemporary academic music, from the very beginning the laboratory was envisioned as an interaction between the musicians and visual artists.
We wanted each lab participant to have the opportunity to do their own work, but within the lab's conceptual framework. After the curator of the musical part, Nikolay Popov, formed the concert program, we distributed each composition among the laboratory participants and accompanied their work until the concert itself.
This time the project of our laboratory was supported by the Moscow-based Praktika Theater and was scheduled as a theatre event.
Each graduate presented a completed visual work, in addition we took some of the best artworks from the 2018 course.
July 18, 2019, an audiovisual concert was held in the Praktika theatre, performed by CEAMMC & ensemble of the Praktika Theater.
