Event Details

Featuring Trilok Gurtu & Castle in Time Orchestra

An NCPA & Mixtape Presentation

Harmonies in Time is a full collaboration between the percussion master Trilok Gurtu and Castle in Time Orchestra. The piece researches the prehistoric in music. It brings out the relationship between a solo player as an individual and the tribe. It uses Indian composition (kaida) that was written for human voice and the tabla and translates it to Western orchestral instruments. It uses complex polyrhythms from Africa
in addition to a stormy fugue from classical Europe. It uses a language of improvisation that was devised in rehearsal as a way to communicate without words while performing, therefore, creating music on the spot. The result is 80 minutes of an unusual collaboration between cultures and generations. Harmonies in Time premiered in the Mekudeshet Festival in Israel in 2017.

Box Office: 9th January for Members & 12th January for Public
