Małe Instrumenty and Pierre Bastien

The joint project of Pierre Bastien, Małe Instrumenty and Piotr Welk is an unusual combination of audiovisual styles which are quite close to each other. The prepared music repertoire is a live premiere of the joint selection of compositions by Pierre Bastien and the group Małe Instrumenty, linked by a collective improvisation and graphic animation. The encounter of Bastien's inimitable mechanical orchestra and the extraordinary instruments and sound-emitting objects will be illustrated with expressive images and abstract graphic forms.
