Drawing Towards Sound

Drawing Towards Sound

4 March - 4 April 2015

Private View: 3 March, 6pm

University of Greenwich,

London SE10 8EY

Drawing towards Sound:Visualising the Sonic is an exhibition curated by David Ryan. It examines the interface between the visual and the aural through notation, documentation, performance and video/moving image. Each of these aspects are currently being explored from many different perspectives by contemporary composers, musicians, visual artists, and film/videographers. Its basic starting point is the historical graphic score/"new" notational practices of the modernist avant-garde and how sound is captured and communicated. It will position these "classic" experimental notations - such as Cage and Boulez - with the output of contemporary composers and visual artists. Highlights will include a complete performance of Cornelius Cardew's 1960s graphic score Treatise, a visit and workshop performance by American experimentalist composer Alvin Curran (b.1938), and a rare chance to see UK performer Anton Lukoszevieze's drawings and films, as well as Icelandic sound artist Hallveig Agústsdóttir's drawing performances.

Too Much is Wonderful

Too Much is Wonderful

Featuring "Song for Many" by Tim Parkinson

BIT20 feirer 25 år med nordiske urpremierer og moderne klassikere

Too much of a good thing is wonderful – dette var grunnprinsippet i entertaineren og pianisten Liberaces estetikk. Camp-kunstneren Liberace – eksentrikeren, de ekstravagante kostymene, blandingen av høy- og lavkultur – har inspirert Jan Erik Mikalsens bestillingsverk til BIT20. Gjennom sine 25 år som ensemble har heller aldri BIT20 vært redd for å være too much. Ensemblets spillestil har blitt beskrevet som "utadvendt", "ekspressiv", "organisk" og "sexy".

Helt siden starten har BIT20 vært en profilert ambassadør for nordisk musikk, og i denne jubileumskonserten byr vi på to helt nye verk av to av Nordens fremste unge komponister sammen med to nordiske klassikere. Her møter Mikalsens "uforutsigbare frodighet" (Edvardpris-juryen) islandske Anna Thorvaldsdottirs nye verk aequilibria, inspirert av hvordan krefter i naturen balanserer hverandre. Finske Magnus Lindbergs heftige, drivende rytmikk møter danske Bent Sørensens drømmende, haiku-inspirerte lydlandskaper. Finnes det noe som forener disse verkene – en egen nordisk sound? Kom på konserten og døm selv!

Før konserten byr vi på litt mat og drikke i Logen bar (kl. 18.00). Her blir det også musikalske hilsener fra Bergens samtidsmusikk-miljø: Avgarde framfører Aria av John Cage og Cathy Berberians Stripsody; Borealis og Ny Musikk Bergen gjør Tim Parkinsons verk Song for many. Byens minste komponistspirer får vi høre i lydinstallasjoner fra BIT20s skoleprosjekt Vi komponerer.
