Comics Concert by and with Itay Dvori.
With his diverse range of compositions and improvisations, pianist Itay Dvori helps transform comics of all kinds into colourful sound paintings that play out the action and increase the tension in the stories. The music is precisely synchronised to the projected comic panels and holds viewers mesmerised under its spell. On the closing night of comiXconnection, Itay Dvori will play a selection of pieces from his repertoire, scores from Edmond Baudouin’s “Le Voyage” and Shaun Tan’s “The Arrival”. In addition, he will present new works composed especially for this evening’s celebration of comics from south-eastern Europe. More information at www.itaydvori.com
