Extremely Pedestrian Chorales

By Karl Jay-Lewin and Matteo Fargion

“A beguiling mix of high and low art… clever, funny and thought-provoking.” ★★★★★ The Herald Scotland (Keith Bruce)

Extremely Pedestrian Chorales presents the prosaic and commonplace experience of the pedestrian as an act of beauty, meaning and gentle comedy.

The work takes its form and structure from the sublime harmonies of JS Bach’s famous Chorales – pitching them into our present day lives with just a dash of punk-ish irreverence and 18th Century powder wigs.  A beguiling mix of high and low art exploring the multifarious roles and movement languages of the pedestrian.
