The Danish composer Simon Steen-Andersenís audio-visual work Black Box Music is a surprising, energetic, noisy and yet profoundly entertaining deconstruction of traditional musical drama. The starting point is the classical setting of a conductor in front of an orchestra Ė but quickly the scenery explodes in musical and choreographic energy ad absurdum, bending the conductorís role through puppet theatre, hand choreography and eventually a musical performance involving tuning forks, finger snaps, rubber bands and the construction of a musical machine within the black box.
The DVD also includes Steen-Andersenís signature work Run Time Error, filmed at the Royal Library in Copenhagen, as well as a short documentary, and thus offers a fascinating meeting with one of Nordic Musicís most visionary voices today.
Since its conception in 2012, Black Box Music has been performed 15 times in 9 different countries. The work was nominated for the Nordic Council Music Prize 2014.
