The Paris-based performer, songwriter,
and radio artist presents a lo-fi performance
on space-operas composed
of forty-eight episodes of the British
science-fiction TV series Space 1999.
The piece offers music units defined in
relation to the producers' roles in the
music industry, ranging from performer
and composer to manager and artistic
director. Through his use of simple
actions, little dances, and love songs,
Gérald Kurdian prompts the audience
to re-consider their understanding of
the musical spectacle.
"Hilariously funny as well as deep and dark, a profound combination. There's nothing like it here in the U.S., and we're lucky to get a glimpse of (Gérald's) very unique world view and beautiful musicality."—Laurie Anderson
This event is part of Lecture/Performance, one of Crossing the Line 2011's three curatorial program perspectives.
