In 2015, on the centennial anniversary of the Armenian Genocide, jazz prodigy Tigran Hamasyan made a sonic pilgrimage through Armenia and Eastern Turkey. This journey was part of Hamasyan’s Luys i Luso project: a re-imagination of sacred Armenian music from the 5th – 20th centuries, which he rearranged for piano and voices. Joined by the Yerevan State Choir, Hamasyan traveled over 2,000 miles, performing across historical Armenia.
The journey was documented by filmmakers Alex Igidbashian and Emily Mkrtichian, and the result is an audio-visual installation, using Studio Ondè’s projection technologies, sound design, and animations that transform historic spaces around the world into living, breathing digital recreations. By using life-sized screens, the audience is able to see, hear and feel the power of Hamasyan’s performances and their respective environments. The installation will also feature Hamasyan improvising a live soundtrack to the installation, and then seamlessly flow into a performance of his award winning Mockroot trio.
Join us on Wednesday, May 4th at the state-of-the-art BRIC House for this unique event. If you’d like to experience the 40 minute installation without the live concert, screenings begin at 5:00pm and 6:00pm. Seating for the final showing plus live concert will begin at 7:45pm.
