Nik Bärtsch’s Mobile – Music Event in Abu Dhabi
Pianist/composer Nik Bärtsch leads his acoustic quartet MOBILE in a 27-hour “Ritual Groove Music” performance installation, organically weaving textures from jazz, funk, new music, and minimalism with ritual and sacred music. This site-specific, multi-venue, non-stop multi-media performance will feature a series of formal concerts and extended musical bridges throughout the night and day, with a visual installation designed by Daniel Eaton.
The audience is invited to join the intense core performance in the Black Box, to relax and dream in the ambient majlis in the foyer, or to visit the companion Project Space exhibition to learn more about the history and context of Nik Bärtsch’s MOBILE’s Rituals. The acoustic, visual, and social resonance reverberates around the main performance in the Black Box to create a vibrating community connection to open the Arts Center’s season.
