The Woman in The Winged Chair

I performed new work for cello and live electronics at Richmond Adult College concert in October 2019. A collaboration with U3A writers group at the college, in aid of the Portcullis Trust. The concert Age / less was with Richmond New Music Group where I was invited to collaborate with the participants on new work exploring the themes of ageing.

My work featured a sound recording of poem called “The Woman in the Winged Chair” by Jean Lambert, along with pre-recorded and live processed sounds with visuals by Amy Reid.

museum of ecoacoustic phenomena

It was great to perform at this event at the Bournemouth Natural Science Museum on Sunday 5th May 2019. It was part of BEAF and a great way to try out new material for cello and live electronics using ableton live. It was also amazing to hear such varied work, much inspired by the environmental sounds around us, check out more information at DIVA contemporary webpage : https://divacontemporary.org.uk/audio/the-museum-of-ecoacoustic-phenomena/ and BU research blog: https://blogs.bournemouth.ac.uk/research/2019/05/03/museum-of-ecoacoustic-phenomena-at-bournemouth-emerging-arts-fringe/
