AVATAR DVADAS PART FIVE by Bruce Gaston and Somtow Sucharitkul

AVATAR DVADAS PART FIVE a meta-symphony in twelve monthly installments
by Bruce Gaston and Somtow Sucharitkul
Capricorn: Microcosm of the Mind

Sunday, 31 January, 4 pm
Floor 1, Bangkok Art and Culture Center

     In the fifth installment of this year-long symphony in time and space, the vast spaces and colours of the preceding four movements are temporarily set aside in order to explore an inner landscape of the mind.

     Somtow Sucharitkul and Bruce Gaston are pitted against each other on simple keyboards.  Each is trapped in a labyrinth of notes, and must play elaborate musical games in order to escape.

    Is it fugue or fugue state?  Inversion or perversion?  Retrograde or retroflex?  Join composers Somtow and Bruce on an improvised journey through madness into light.

    The first three episodes of AVATAR DVADAS are now available on a DVD and will be available for sale at the event.
