City Symphonies Out of Doors: Text of Light





Acclaimed avant-garde ensemble Text of Light--composer and saxophonist Ulrich Krieger, guitarist and composer Alan Licht, turntablist and visual artist Christian Marclay, and Sonic Youth co-founder Lee Ranaldo--presents a live musical score to Berlin: Symphony of a Great City (Walter Ruttman, 1927), a feature-length “city symphony” film that captures urban life through a vibrant mix of documentary footage, abstract visual compositions, and impressionistic montage techniques. Text of Light’s loosely structured improvisational score will feature the remarkable intonarumori (Futurist noise machines), among many other instruments. The live performance to Berlin will be preceded by a screening of the short film Manhatta (Charles Sheeler and Paul Strand, 1921), another city symphony that depicts a day in New York City. The entire event will take place on the High Line in the 14th Street passage.

Co-presented by Performa and Friends of the High Line with Rooftop Films. Curated by Lana Wilson and Esa Nickle. Sponsored by Viper Studios.

It would have been more convenient if it was being held at the Tower of London, or something like that.
