The ZOFOMOMA Live Concert Experience unfolds as an aurally and visually stunning walking tour through a virtual museum of modern art. Against an ever-changing backdrop of contemporary paintings, 15 new ZOFO-commissioned duet compositions are revealed throughout the 75-minute continuous performance. And in a nod to Mussorgsky, this 21st-century Pictures at an Exhibition leads viewers from one gallery to the next accompanied by a new “promenade” theme arranged by ZOFO’s Keisuke Nakagoshi.
For this cutting-edge project ZOFO solicited new works from top composers around the globe, and requested each to select a painting representative of his or her culture as a springboard to the creative process. The result is a rich tapestry of sights and sounds reflecting the cultural, musical and artistic diversity of our world.
