ensemble mosaik – "adrift yet somehow tethered"

concert installation

The concert installation adrift yet somehow tethered is the second part of the series realities, places and displacements of places. For this Karen Power explored nature with camera and microphone in the most remote places on earth. In a multi-room installation, the documentary material becomes the basis of a performance in which musicians and composer explore the meaning of (self-)location by means of real, invented and remembered places. 

The series realities, places and displacements of places addresses urban developments and questions socio-cultural contexts. The full-length concert installations are based on research by the composers Katharina Rosenberger, Karen Power, Juliana Hodkinson and Joanna Bailie and the musicians of ensemble mosaik. They bring together current research and artistic reflections in multimedia conceptions and invite the audience to explore.
