A performance about three men that really want to achieve something. Something Big. Together. Right now. Something that might change everything. Or nothing. All they have is one piece of music. It helps them to see what they are and to see what they could be. What do we see when we listen? What do we imagine? What is imagination and how does it appeal to us? Music is the starting point of this Performance. The piece of music is composed by Giovanni Bottesini 1821–1889. It is the third part (Allegro) of the concert No. 2 in B minor for Double Bass and Orchestra, played by Edgar Meyer and the Saint Paul Chamber Orchestra. Bottesini’s music is virtuosic and melodic. The concerto No. 2 is surprisingly optimistic and within only five minutes it shows a whole range of different dynamics. The doubts, the euphoria, the all and the nothing.
An approach to seeing what we hear, to hearing what we see; to explaining what we hear, to understanding what we hear, to changing what we hear and to understanding what happens when we don’t hear or see anything. When we understand that there are so many ways of listening and watching something, how can we find out what we see or hear ourselves? How do we translate what we hear or see into thoughts?
