Ivy Arts Centre & PATS Studio Theatre
A one-day festival exploring interdisciplinary encounters in music composition
Sounds Between presents new work, research, discussion and workshops focussed on the interactions between music and other disciplines. Four new pieces by Jamie Hamilton/Dom Czapski, Squib-box, Jan Lee and Rodrigo Camacho/Sara Rodriguez receive their first performances interspersed with contributions from, amongst others, Sound and Music, networked composition expert Jason Freeman and long established choreography/composition partners Jonathan Burrows and Matteo Fargion.
Sounds between is the culmination of a year-long research network funded by the AHRC led by Tom Armstrong from the University of Surrey in collaboration with York and Oxford Brookes Universities. The network has brought together practitioners in music, the performing and fine arts as well as scientists and arts administrators. It has given insights into the many and varied approaches to interdisciplinarity in the arts, into the ways such work might be facilitated and into the processes of creation involved in bringing interdisciplinary projects to fruition.
Admission to all events in the festival is free but advanced booking is recommended via the Ivy Arts Centre box office.
