Goethe-Institut New York Library

Livestream 24/7 (see video at the bottom of this page)

FREE Event (no reservations needed, walk-ins welcome and encouraged)

For fourteen consecutive days, all day, pianist Marino Formenti will perform in the Goethe-Institut New York Library, where he will also live — in a space that is mercilessly both public and private. We invite you to come and go freely, to listen to music in a different dimension, with Formenti playing the piano daily, from morning to night. With round-the-clock live streaming, you can also experience and share his days at a distance.

NOWHERE is a non-place in the middle of the city. Marino Formenti performs, eats, sleeps, and lives … all in the same space — a metaphorical, silent, musical ‘glass house’ that is also surrounded and on view by the daily life of the city. In a performance about music, time, and togetherness, Formenti questions any and all divisions between performance and life. Days become music. We invite you to come and stay, leave and come back, listen or ignore the pianist, sleep, read, write, draw, lie down — to experience music, time, and togetherness in another way.

Works by  J.S. Bach, J. Cage, L. Couperin, M. Formenti, G. Frescobaldi, F. El Atrache, B. Eno, J. Froberger, M. Feldman, and Nirvana, among others.
