MUFFLING FOG - AFTER MARTIN HEIDEGGER (2014, New York)
The Multimedia Concert for piano, sound and video art.

Composer, director, video, sound: Gio Janiashvili
Acoustic grand piano, stereo sound and single-channel video projection.
Duration: 45 minutes.

The work was inspired by Martin Heidegger's philosophy of boredom. The three mediums - live piano, acousmatic sound and video, play equal dramturgical parts in the hybrid performance structure, which examines emotional states of boredom and particularities of the flow of time in relationship to it.
