Portrait Concert Tato Taborda

Concert at the ZKM_Cube, 8 p.m.
Admission € 9/6

Information auf Deutsch

The Brazilian composer Tato Taborda together with his “one-man-orchester” Geralda will be guest at the ZKM in April. The multi-instrumental structure Geralda comprises seventy acoustic and electronic sound creators, some of which are damaged and aged toys and instruments that appear useless for making music. For composer Tato Taborda, Geralda is nearly human. He slips into it and begins to stack up the sounds. In concert, he maintains a dialogue with performer Alexandre Fenerich who transfers the sounds from Geralda into a visual-virtual world thus forming her digital alter ego. The rules are set and the leeway is equally distributed. In this way, a resounding fairy-tale being emerges: half aluminum and strings, half algorithms and data.
