Exploring the human consciousness under the influence of psychoactive substances,Henri Michaux describes the “schizophrenic table” as a table made of infinite additions, excessively dense, brimming over and interminable. Over time it looks like a monstrous clump of wood rather than a table. The top surface of the table, supposedly its useful part, is gradually disappearing; its parts so nebulously connected that it no longer resembles a table but rather a distorted piece of furniture, enclosed within its endless additions, serving some obscure function.
“Delusions” is the new concert program of HaZira, introducing experimental musicians who are taken away from their dark, secluded underground onto the light of stage. Various experimental artists are invited to step out of their natural habitat and venture into the foreign territory of a unique audiovisual environment, provided and supported, technically and artistically, by HaZira and its Tech-Poetry skillful team. Unlike concerts taking places in clubs and basements, this series of performances lends an opportunity to engage in a simultaneously traditional and uncompromising experience, granting music its due time and space from beginning to end.
But the end never comes and the concert will not end with the last note; within eight carefully curated events, a kind of a “schizophrenic table” – unending, broken down in time and space – will be created with continuously added pieces until it will be hardly recognized as a table. Every show will attempt to unfold a state of mind in which these artists adhere to their somewhat “monstrous” art with a multi-layered obsession, without necessarily knowing why they do it, nor how their art will reach its final note, if ever.
