Pictures at an Exhibition, Modest Mussorgky's 1874 original piano version vs Emerson Lake and Palmer art-rock version (for five instruments)

 

Un mash-up tra la versione originale del 1874 per pianoforte e la sua rilettura progressive rock del 1971 ad opera di Emerson, Lake and Palmer. L’idea del progetto è nata dal visual artist australiano Andrew Quinn che dopo aver lavorato alcuni anni alla celebre versione di Maurice Ravel per grande orchestra sinfonica, produce un'installazione sonora che in tempo reale risponde alla musica dei Quadri di Musorgskij, in una inedita versione progressive rock contemporanea.

A mash-up version of the original version of Mussorgksy's masterpiece (1874) and the prog rock take on the subject by Emerson lake and Palmer (1971). The idea was triggered by Australian visual artist Andrew Quinn who had previously—and extensively—worked on the famous orchestral version by Maurice Ravel. Quinn has taken his original idea and re-worked it into a real-time responsive installation that reacts to Mussorgky's music, bridging the gap between the original and its prog rock sibling.
