Wednesday 19 June, Barbican Life Rewired Hub (Level G), 6 - 7pm
Nick Luscombe (Musicity founder) in conversation with:
Kassia Flux - Commission based at St Barts the Great
ARUP - Acoustic experts and Musicity partner
Meet the composers and find out more about the pieces they created, which use sound mapping data gathered by acoustic partners ARUP to explore the intrinsic connection between architecture, sound and creativity around the city.
Kassia Flux is a sound artist, composer and scientist who forages and forges material from her surroundings, integrating it with her electric violin, voice and other instruments. Her piece responds to the ancient space inside St . Bartholomew the Great - London's oldest parish church, built when Henry I, son of William the Conqueror, was King of England, creating a piece that "speaks of the present, yet slips and slides back and forth into a past that is ephemeral, veiled, and ghost-like".
ARUP, Musicity's acoustic partner, are global leaders in acoustic consulting, responsible for everything from beautiful sound in concert halls to controlling vibration in sensitive laboratory environments. For Musicity, ARUP lead the acoustic surveys and impulse responses which begin the commissioning process that makes each composition intrinsically linked to each location.
The talk takes place at The Life Rewired Hub (Barbican Centre level G) and is free to attend
