Vložte kočku @ La Fabrika

This was the venue for the Vložte kočku concert on 13 January – the former Richter Machine Works in Prague that has been transformed into a superbly designed and equipped art centre and theatre. Vložte kočku’s hour and a half programme entitled ‘Otázka času’ featured both new music as well as work from their previous albums. Below, a collage of photos of the stage set up at rehearsal and one of the many photos of the stage that Dima took during the performance.The matt black projection screens on the side walls of the auditorium were made of some kind of material that appeared to be completely opaque. However, the colours in my projected Tagtool drawings, as well as being really bright, could be seen on both sides of the screen dividing the bar from the auditorium – the reversed images making for a really interesting drawing experience!Here are some photos from my practice session during the rehearsal…Above, looking from the bar towards the auditorium…

…and below, Peter and Dima busy programming the LED lighting for the stage.The collage below shows the drawing that I made to welcome the audience before the band came on stage (with Peter and Dima still making some last minute adjustments to the programming of the lighting effects!).The Tagtool drawings during the performance were to be a sequence of three images loosely connected with the themes of the songs in the programme, meaning that each drawing took about 30 minutes to be ‘complete’. Below, some photos of the first drawing on the theme of landscape and memories….

The second drawing sequence, beginning with the icy pond to accompany the song, ‘Ryby II’ was in monochrome to provide a stark contrast to the brilliance of the stage lighting and Kryštof’s new illuminated electronics console …

And a return to colour for the third landscape….with horses (to accompany the song, ‘Koně’)….

and some children (a reference to the children’s choir singing in the song, ‘Bože’, who could hardly be seen on the balcony above the stage)

To end this post, some photos of Kryštof’s illuminated electronics console….…this was really spectacular!
