Wasteland Twinning Nottingham has commissioned composer and sound artist Matthias Kispert to write a vocal work to be performed on The Island. We are now looking for performers to realise it on Saturday 5th October, 2-4pm. You are very welcome just to turn up, or email us on nottingham [at] wasteland-twinning [dot] net for more information!
No previous musical or performance experience is necessary.
ABOUT THE WORK
Groups will assemble on the boundaries of The Island, and together recite a prepared text score about waste, wastelands and regeneration. This involves chanting, singing and shouting in a continuous game of action and reaction. The work explores the idea of a commons through sound and the voice; and through collective action between pre-determined performance and spontaneous chaos.
Video documentation of the performance will form part of Wasteland Twinning Nottingham's exhibition at ATTIC, One Thoresby Street.
