The mundane is made special in this hypnotic performance.

The Swiss-American video artist/composer/musician Christian Marclay has produced captivating work exploring the relationships between image and sound. Just as in his masterpiece The Clock (Golden Lion Venice Biennale), he has constructed a montage of hundreds of film clips for Everyday, which serves as a visual score for a five-piece ensemble with Marclay himself on turntables and electronics. The moving images are part of the performance. The audience can witness how the musicians make use of the freedom for interpretation given to them by the film. They can allow themselves to be swept away by a hypnotic, exciting and virtuoso performance in which the mundane and the exceptional acquire new meaning through a new story.
