In the autumn 2016 I started an ongoing collaboration with musician Marcel Gaul. We made a set of ‘rules’ which we now have carried out a number of times in churches in Denmark. The ‘rules’ are as following:
Mia-Nelle creates a large scale painting in front of an audience
Marcel plays on an organ
Mia-Nelle has not heard nor know what Marcel is playing beforehand. Her painting is therefore a direct and ‘painterly’ reaction to the music in front of a live audience
Duration: 50 minutes
Taken place in churches, as it is the only place where an organ can be found, which is one of the few instruments in the world which is a direct part of the space in which it is experienced.
The collaboration is ongoing.
