Without You, Tal Rosner
Tal is a filmmaker and graphic designer who has made his name with radical interpretations of musical compositions.
Since receiving an MA from Central Saint Martins College of Art & Design (2005), he has completed a variety of commissioned work, including a visual exploration of Stravinsky and Debussy's two-piano music, in collaboration with Katia and Marielle Labeque, released on DVD (KML Recordings, 2006), and a two-screen interpretation of Conlon Nancarrow's Player Piano Study No.7 (Barbican Centre, 2007).
In April 2008, his 29 minutes/6 channel video piece In Seven Days, in collaboration with the composer Thomas Ades, was premiered at London's Royal Festival Hall as a part of its reopening season. The piece was co-commissioned by the London Sinfonietta and the Los Angeles Philharmonic Association, where the piece has had its US premiere in May 2008.
Most recently, Tal has won a BAFTA Television Craft Award (Best Title Design) for his title sequence for Channel 4's television series Skins.
