This week I am working on a new project with Oliver Cherer as part of a week long residency called Sotto Voce which in it’s translation means lowering the voice. This project is based on the work of Galileo, looking at his theory in 1614 that the planets revolved around the sun, unfortunately this led to him being accused of being a heretic, and he was forbidden by the church in teaching these findings!
Sotto Voce consists of a number of artists responding the work of Galileo, many of whom are painters and visual artists including Tom Banks whose work I just love! Paula Macarthur is another, along with other amazing Hasting based artists who can be found through the Sotto Voce website.
Ollie and I have composed a new piece of work that represents the travel of the planets orbiting the Sun, each one having it’s own unique voice, as they pass and collide sonically. We will be showcasing our pilot version on the 16th July at the Stade Hall in Hastings as part of an evening of Theatre and Sonics.
We are also working with an Italian contemporary Theatre Group Alibi Here we are providing the soundtrack to their very moving work ” and yet the earth moves” .
Yesterday we also got the opportunity to visit an inflatable planetarium that was erected int he foyer of the East Sussex College.Which if you ever get the opportunity to visit one do so! I though it was pretty amazing! Here are some images I took.
In other news there will be a new release from me, fingers crossed very soon, the project is called Alone in Splendour and am very much looking forward to sharing this with the world! Have a fantastic summer where ever you are…..much more soon.
Ah, so good to hear about your music! Will I be able to listen to any of it online?
