Sonic Commission: Hogarth Productions / Oxford Contemporary Music

November 4, 2014 in All Opportunities, Composers by mwhiteside

This new commission is for a sonic work to inhabit up to 8 pods and should take Mike Blow and Alison Ballard’s original work as a point of departure to be subsumed, expanded or subverted.

The visually arresting and aurally entrancing work will be easily engaged by broad audiences and offers a fresh approach and access to contemporary music. The audience will be able to move around and between the work during the performance / installation and will be able to touch the surface of each sphere.

The completed work will tour a number of venues and festival throughout the Summer of 2015 including ‘Constellation’; a multi-disciplinary art trail throughout Reading Town Centre and an interactive sound art exhibition at South Hill Park, Bracknell (Dates TBC). Further performances may be realised at a later date.
