Christian Marclay's Screen Play is a new work consisting of a projected video score to be interpreted by three musical ensembles performing live on November 11th, 2005. The projected element of Screen Play is a combination of found film footage overlaid with computer animation. Marclay chose footage suggesting certain visual rhythms and emotions, which he then worked to accentuate or underscore elements with overlapping computer graphics. The resulting video- reminiscent at moments of a silent film and at others of a flight simulator- becomes the visual score for musicians to interpret live.
The video score of Screen Play was produced in Eyebeam's Production Studios for the 2005 Moving Image Commission. Eyebeam and PERFORMA05 are co-presenting this premiere performance.
