Performance: Haroon Mirza – Modular Opera

You’ll feel like you are riding the ocean waves with this young British artist. On Saturday, 21 May, Haroon Mirza, a sculptor, composer, and performer all in one. The artist will lead an electro-acoustic performance in the form of a modular opera composed of fragments from Mirza’s art pieces.  

Haroon Mirza’s varied oeuvre is comprised of sculptural assamblages, immersive installations and live performances, and is rooted in his deep relationship to music, which he started building while working as a DJ.

Mirza perceives music as organised sounds and noise, and as a composer he arranges various visual and accounstic elements of materials as well as space, transforming them into new forms. His main medium is electricity, which he perceives similarly to ocean waves and loves to record this natural phenomenon both visually and sonically.  

His performance is a part of his modular opera series, a collaborative project, to which he regularly invites other artists, musicians and designers. In Prague, he will perform among others with the vocalist Sarah-Jane Lewis.
