The tables are turned with this musical ‘follow the leader’ as the conductor becomes performer and the stage an instrument in Simon Steen-Andersen’s quirky and experimental work.

Black Box Music uses a live video projection of the conductor’s gestures in a black box to direct three sets of performers around the concert hall.  The work treads a fine line between music and contemporary sound art.  Who is leading whom?  Or is there even a ‘leader’ at all?
