Tafelmusik has a long history of exploring the intersections of the arts.

Be it exploring what happens when folk music meets baroque music in their Haus Musik series, or a multi-disciplinary The Galileo Project that led to the International Astronomical Union naming an asteroid after them. Today we can add Musik in Motion to the growing list of feats.

Musik in Motion is a new free video series for social media featuring local artists interpreting some of Tafelmusik’s signature repertoire. There will be a total of five videos produced monthly by Toronto’s Puncture Design.

Launched today, the first of the series features painter Darby Milbrath painting a work to Vivaldi’s Violin Concerto in C Minor, RV 761 “Amato bene”, from Tafelmusik’s 2019 album Vivaldi con amore.

The painting was done, “in one session without preparatory sketches,” explains Milbrath. “The painting is a spontaneous, visual interpretation of the concerto. There is a sense of playfulness and mischief in the painting, which was inspired by the lively energy in the concerto.”

“Although we are immersed in the world of performing and recording concerts, we love that the music Tafelmusik plays is part of a larger aesthetic that includes visual art, dance, and many other creative disciplines,” said Tafelmusik’s Executive Director, Carol Kehoe. “We see this period of restriction as an opportunity to reach beyond our own practice to highlight how Canadian artists from other disciplines are inspired by this music in their work today. Musik in Motion also allows us to support and lift up our larger creative community, which is more imperative now than ever.”

Musik in Motion videos will premiere once a month on YouTube, Instagram, Facebook, and TikTok.
