Orkestra Futura, under the direction of Coat Cooke explores the world of “game compositions” reprising a new version of Stefan Smulovitzʼ “Mad Scientist” work for LED lights and improvisors.
In this game piece a conductor (in this case both live and via a Skype internet connection), cues the improvisers in Orkestra Futura with musical commands that lead the artists through the conductorʼs compositional vision featuring four internet conductors over the course of the two nights.
The concert also features new game pieces from Coat Cooke among others and promises to be a powerfully intriguing couple of evenings of music making.
