FORT PROCESS – PANORAMIC SCORES performances

 Fort Process festival, a production by the Lost Property arts collective, commissioned me for a new panoramic score composition, after last year’s IMAGIRO Landmannalaugar.

Central / Caponier

are the titles of the two on-location panoramic scores I created for the Fort Process Festival, named after the locations they are situated in – the Central Gun Placement and the Caponier Tunnel of Fort Newhaven, East-Sussex, UK. Last Saturday, Sept 22, these pieces premiered.

Here are a few impressions.

Agata Urbaniak made some great photos of the Fort Process festival, last Saturday. This is a photo of ‘Caponier’ #panoramicscore #graphicscore. It wraps around the corner. Approximately 28 metres long.

Fort Process – panoramic scores #3

The Fort Process festival, a production by the Lost Property arts collective, commissioned me for a new panoramic score composition. I’ve been very much looking forward to starting working on it – it’s going to be much longer than last year’s IMAGIRO Landmannalaugar and wrapping through buildings of Fort Newhaven, starting today!

I’ve got the 40 metres of fabric! Plucked them out of the sky. #40metres#panoramicscore #graphicscore #workinprogress #inkandbrush #fortprocess#composer #premiere #Sept22

April LIVE dates

‘Jobina Tinnemans as BLATNOVA’ establishes a magical biotope where acoustic ecology, science fiction, minimalism, sound processing and songwriting can coexist peacefully next to each other. From this recipe Jobina cooks up a weird alchemy: while you’re listening you will discover a little door in the speakers of your soundsystem. You pass and enter a new universe.’

JTasBLA-artwork01-CAMfestivalCardiff-CARDIFF-web

April 8 – CAM’17 Festival Cardiff, Sunflower&I  – experimental music festival curated by Gwenno Saunders, do check it out if you are in the area.

April 21 – Disconcert event, St.Paul’s Church, Worthing

April 29 – John Grant’s North Atlantic Flux: ‘Sounds from the Smoky Bay’ music festival in Hull UK Capital of Culture 2017

 

It’s a cross-genre programme on grand piano with electronics, field recordings and page turners on multiple speakers. I found that the best way to explain the concept to myself was by adopting the moniker ‘Jobina Tinnemans as BLATNOVA‘ inspired by etched illustrations of a Shakespeare’s ‘Henry V’ version with ‘Laurence Olivier as King Henry‘ I noticed on a friend’s very nicely decorated toilet.  Noisy experimental music and delicate song writing.
…or was it the other way round?

Each concert has it’s own poster. Why? Why not.

ALSO IN APRIL ‘REFLECTIONS OVER VERISIMILITUDE’ COMING TO THE UK AT HULL CAPITAL OF CULTURE #hull’17

Sunday April 30th – City Hall, 2.30pm

‘Reflections over Verisimiltude’ is for choir and electronics, with mesmerising visuals by Jacob Tekiela, staged in the City Hall which is a magnificent venue. This is going to be good!
The concert is part of John Grant’s ‘North Atlantic Flux: Sounds from the Smoky Bay’ music festival programme.

About ‘Reflections over Verisimiltude’: last year I spent much time in Iceland collaborating with the South Iceland Chamber Choir and film maker Jacob Tekiela for my Moving Classics commission, produced by Curated Place. It premiered at the Cycle Festival in Kopavógur in October last year and received great appraisal. Supported by the PRS Foundation for Music we are adding a Hull edition to this concert for the cultural celebrations which are taking place during Hull’17.

Iceland and Hull have a long seafaring history together and this edition of ‘Reflections over Verisimilitude’ connects the people on both bays, as their echoes reflect over the ocean surface to each other. Voices of origin, wonder, despair, hope and love. Voices of Life.

Watch the Cycle Festival for Music and Art Iceland premiere concert here.
