OTOTO is a co-production of Castle in Time Orchestra and the Israel Chamber Orchestra, playing music in a circle, creating an imaginary futuristic tribe.
Composer Matan Daskal uses a sign language inspired by “Soundpainting” – a hybrid of dancing and conducting, allowing a live improvisation with the musicians, converting the stage into a vibrant arena with unexpected behaviors. As in the previous pieces of Castle in Time Orchestra, the computer player sends its tentacles and manipulates the acoustic instruments during the concert – giving them a dynamic electronic timbre. OTOTO contains extraordinary virtuosity solos which bring out the individual players, along with moments of wide and big orchestral colors.
The piece breaks down the word OTOTO, as it sounds and as it’s written: The “O” represents long times, the breath, the open space. The “T” represents short times, the groove, and repeated rhythmic events. Like the word, the piece is divided into 5 parts: O, T, O, T, O.
