David Behrman Celebrated in Portugal

Source: Ciclo Serralves.

OPEN SPACE: FOCUS ON DAVID BEHRMANis a tribute and an opportunity to revisit a wide range of works from Behrman’s musical career, underlining some of his past and current collaborations.

Most of his compositions feature flexible structures and the use of technology in personal ways; they rely on interactive real-time relationships with imaginative performers. “I’ve wanted to make works that have personalities, which remain distinct and recognizable, yet are open to surprising changes that can come about when they are performed or exhibited. I’ve liked the idea of being a designer of situations rather than of fixed pieces.” – David Behrman
