rAndom International : “Rain Room at the Barbican”

::

::

Music by Max Richter
Filming by Gramafilm

::

Random International invites you to experience what it’s like to control the rain. Visitors can choose to simply watch the spectacle or find their way carefully through the rain, putting their trust in the work to the test. More than the technical virtuosity necessary for its success, the piece relies on a sculptural rigour, with the entire Curve transformed by the monumental proportions of a carefully choreographed downpour and the sound of water. R.I. are known for their distinctive approach to digital-based contemporary art. Their experiments come alive through audience interaction and staged performance…

Max Richter : ‘Luminous’ (Animated Music Score)

::

::

Composer Max Richter was born in Germany in 1966 and grew up in the UK. He studied Composition and Piano at The University of Edinburgh, The Royal Academy of Music and in Florence with Luciano Berio. Though he has a strong background in the canons of classical music, his influences were more modern composers and in particular, Iannis Xenakis whose musical compositions applied mathematical and physical laws, and the American Minimalists. His influences also include numerous rock bands such as, The Beatles, Pink Floyd and The Clash, as well as electronic music groups Kraftwerk and Autechre…

He co-founded Piano Circus, a contemporary classical ensemble, where he stayed for ten years. With the ensemble, he commissioned and performed the works of experimental artists like Steve Reich, David Lang, Arvo Pärt, Brian Eno and Julia Wolfe. After he left, he became involved in the UK’s thriving electronic scene, collaborating with The Future Sound of London and Roni Size. He has released four solo albums: Memoryhouse (2002), Blue Notebooks (2004), Songs From Before (2006), and latest, 24 Postcards In Full Colour (2008), a collection of miniatures originally meant to be used as ringtones. Recently he’s scored a number of films, including the critically acclaimed Waltz with Bashir by Ari Folman.

Max Richter : The Trees


max richter – the trees

Released on Fat-Cats off-shoot label 130701, Richters second album, The Blue Notebooks, features a small core of musicians, specifically Richter on piano, violinists Louisa Fuller and Natalie Bonner, viola player John Mecalfe, and cellists Chris Worsey and Philip Sheppard. While piano and strings dominate, organ playing (on Iconography and Organum) and field recordings (environmental sounds like the crows at the end of Shadow Journal) also appear. Accompanied by typewriter sounds, actress Tilda Swinton (Orlando) reads excerpts from Frank Kafkas The Blue Octavo Notebooks and Polish author Czseslaw Miloszs Hymn Of The Pearl and Unattainable Earth. Her intermittent cameos add variety and contrast to the otherwise instrumental pieces. Such details might suggest that a daunting experimental style dominates the album. On the contrary, the music is delectably melodic and eminently accessible.
