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 the 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 the 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 at the Mekudeshet Festival in Israel in 2017.
