Embodied Sounds (Live Performance)

24 November, 2018, 11:00 am - 4:00 pm

This short concert showcases research that explores unusual connections between musical instruments and the body. This will include music that changes as you sing while you eat the score; flute pieces limited to a single breath; music performed while undertaking (and transformed by) unusual activities or extreme exercise; music made from ruined instruments; and music that explores the way people interact as they perform.

This event is run in association with the Royal Northern College of Music’s Experimental & Exploratory Music Research Centre and includes research from Larry Goves, James Saunders, Claudia Molitor, Mark Dyer and Bofan Ma. It also includes extracts from Kathryn William’s extensive commissioning project ‘Coming Up for Air’ and her research collaboration with composer Annie Hui-Hsin Hsieh. This concert is performed by The House of Bedlam.

Performances will take place throughout the day in the Carole Nash Recital Room at the following times: 12:00pm to 12:45pm, 2:00pm to 2:45pm and 4:00pm to 4:45pm.

This event also has related exhibition entitled ‘Embodied Sounds (Interactive Exhibition)’ on Saturday 24 November.
