Waves of Visions is a collaboration between pianist and composer Yakir Arbib and visual artist Tamar Haber-Schaim that comes to fruition in a seven-movement suite for live visuals, flute, drum set, piano, and cello.
Throughout the piece, music and visuals interact and influence each other on various levels, and coexist as two separate living presences that may be perceived by either one of two senses. The composer, having synesthesia and being blind from birth, is able to pick up on the presence of the visuals and respond to it in the moment with his music.
Each one of the suite's movements focuses on a different approach to the process of creating: from improvisation in the moment, to preconceived structure, to reconstruction of a moment of ecstasy. The two artists consent to mirror each other's processes in order to achieve a unified artistic expression.
