‘Metropolis Rebooted: Cine-concert’

Opening of Ars Musica with Brussels Philharmonic

Expressionist, geometric and visionary, Fritz Lang's silent film Metropolis (1927), a masterpiece of the cinema, heralds a machine-like and totalitarian world which opens onto a science-fiction universe. In 1995, Argentine composer Martin Matalon wrote the score, Metropolis Rebooted, which, initially commissioned by IRCAM and the Ensemble Intercontemporain for an exhibition on the theme of the city, was rewritten in 2021. A formal alliance between the images from the film and a musical composition for orchestra and electronics, this masterful experiment, conducted by Ilan Volkov for the Brussels Philharmonic, explores the parallel or subtended universes that music and image produce, together and sometimes separately, on the screen and within musical listening.
