Sonic.art Saxophone Quartet Presented at the Milan Expo 2015
17.7.2015: On July 17th, visitors of the Expo 2015 in Milan were able to enjoy a special composition that combined music and video together: at the World Expo, the German Pavilion presented Robert Pohle’s video “Sonic.art – Bagatelle I” with music performed by GENUIN classic’s saxophone quartet sonic.art. The work, in which sketch-like drawings of musicians accompany György Ligeti’s “Bagatelle I”, performed by sonic.art, was presented at the live venue of the German Pavilion in a video by the Frankfurt Institute for New Media (INM).
Sonic.art and Robert Pohle had already won first prize among 90 entries with this video back in 2011 in the “Visual Music Award” creativity competition. At the World Expo, the INM presented special and noteworthy “visual symphonies” of the award, which is given to works from the experimental film genre “visual music”, also known as “eye music”.
