GARON by Yuval Avital
Contemporary music for 40+ tubas, 6 percussion, choir, 3 conductors and live electronics.
26/01/2012 – closing concert of Anish Kapoor’s site specific installation in Milan, Italy, titled “Dirty Corner”.
Dirty Corner, the site-specific installation by Anish Kapoor at the Fabbrica del Vapore, Milan, will host the world premiere of GARON by Yuval Avital – a massive sonic composition for 40 tubas and 6 percussion with a choir & soloists of extended vocal techniques, 3 conductors & live electronics.
In a large-scale sonic experiment – a concert designed to involve the public and performers in an architecture of meanings and structures – GARON (in Hebrew – “throat”) is the brand new opera of Yuval Avital, an emerging talent of the international contemporary music scene.
The concert is a co-production of MADEINART & Maga Global Arts, the Milan-based performing arts organization in which Avital is the Artistic director, and MilanoSonora.
GARON is a real journey of listening with an exceptional orchestration.
40 tubas (ranging from contrabass Tubas to Euphoniums – the tenor tubas) are the foundation of this original sonic mass (in a stable orchestra usually only one tuba player is present), 6 percussion, 1 choir of 16 singers, 4 soloists of extended vocal techniques, 3 conductors, 1 programmer for the live electronics played in 12 speakers & one composer/director.
