Ari Benjamin Meyers Symphony 80, 2017
Performance, original score, performance protocol and the right to stage the performance in consultation with the artist
Duration 240:00 min
Symphony 80 was composed specifically for the Städtische Galerie im Lenbachhaus in Munich. Produced in collaboration with the Bavarian Radio Symphony Orchestra, it examines the question of how to display the complexity of an orchestra — a sizable ensemble that is typically organized in accordance with a fixed arrangement of instruments and performs as a unit under the direction of a conductor — in an exhibition that allows the audience to observe not just the choric whole but also the specific contributions of its individual members.
