INSTRUMEN

An experimental musical piece that is shown on three separated screens as a video triptych. In collaboration with three musicians for a period of a year, Hertog built and developed unique musical instruments to fit each musician. These instruments became body extensions that blur the boundaries between the musicians and their instruments. A musical composition was filmed in one take by three cameras simultaneously, resulting in a realtime installation.

Musicians: Mischa Kool - singing saw, Sasha Agranov - sashon, Giori Politi - percussion
