5. SROKA IN MOTION

Motion Trio Concert

The project was developed together with Jacek Sroka and Jarosław Migoń and launched at Motion Trio’s birthday concert at the Krakow Opera in 2014.
The video projections, whose composition, colour and theme emphasise the emotions generated by the band during concerts, have been made on the basis of Jacek Sroka’s paintings. Each piece performed by Motion Trio is matched with mobile visualisations of selected paintings. The visual part of this performance was prepared by Jarosław Migoń. The camera, moving from the specific to the general, reveals minute details of each picture and shows them in a new perspective. Thanks to the motion inside the frame, the elements in the picture acquire a spatial dimension and create consecutive layers of its complex composition. This leaves the viewer - listener with unique impressions. The paintings blend with music to create one performance on stage and, by amplifying impressions, produce an unforgettable audiovisual experience.

Sroka in Motion was presented, among others, in Wrocław, Minsk, Świnoujście, Novosibirsk and the Krzysztof Penderecki European Centre for Music in Lutosławice.
