Christian Marclay presents a new staging in the Capella MACBA of his most recent work, Investigations (2018), on 19 July. It reflects Marclay’s interest in photography and the non-traditional use of classical instruments. This score was made from a collection of 100 found and cropped images of hands playing piano. The score is to be interpreted by a large ensemble of pianists, ten in this case, who are asked to decipher the sound made when the photograph was taken and notate the results of their investigation.

At MACBA Investigations will be played by Steve BeresfordLluïsa EspigoléAugustí FernándezElena FontHaize LizarazuJordi LópezJordina MillàKayla PortugalPhilip Thomas and Carles Viarnès.

In collaboration with Sónar+D 2019, Christian Marclay will participate in a talk that will take place on 18 July as part of the programme of the congress of creative technologies, which will be held on 17, 18, 19 and 20 July simultaneously with Sónar by Day at Fira Montjuïc in Barcelona.

Within the framework of this collaboration, MACBA will offer free admission to the Museum for everyone accredited to Sónar+D 2019 (until 24 September).
