(PROTO)ELIPS

Tabernacle: Mostrn Street Llandudno

13/8/16 6pm Launch (other performances TBC)

 

 

A very large scale experimental instrument is being built in the Tabernacl Baptist Church at the top end of the high street in Llandudno. The idea is Jenny Hall's (http://craftedspace.co.uk/, https://www.facebook.com/craftedspace.co.uk/posts/1272702682742077) who hails from Machynlleth and is constructing the piece with the aid of Roger Hughes and Ed Wright.

Artist Jenny Hall has been busy this week installing a giant musical instrument that’s supported by the structure of the Tabernacle in Llandudno. You are invited to pluck, hit, knock, bow and listen to the sounds made by the (proto)elips installation.
Musicians and sound artists will also interact with the installation, creating music and soundscapes.
The immersive sound made will be a product of the player, the instrument and the Tabernacle itself.
OPENING ON TUESDAY 13TH SEPTEMBER AT 6PM
All welcome to come and play!

There will be an opening on (this) Tuesday 13th September with performances from...

Helen Wyn Pari - who has been involved in performances at the Tabernacl in the past and created peices for it and so knows the space well, including Distawrwydd (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HIuHmenWgz8) with Eddie Ladd, and the music for Sarah Younan's - The Source (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nDksopOy0T0).
Helen will be trying out a new 20 minute idea of her own on Tuesday working with the space, her Harp and the (proto) elips, under the working title of 'Echoes of the Past' which should be great.

Ed will also creating a 20 minute piece for the evening, for which he's not revealed a great deal of detail but promises to be very experimental, to fit in with the project. More info on Ed here http://www.virtual440.com/

Come along if you can as this will be a very unique event, and there is the opportunity for the following 10 days up until and including the LLawn Arts Festival weekend (http://www.llawn.org/) for musicians of all sorts to book in and come and have a go with the (proto) elips and experiment with and give feedback. Contact me directly to check availability, but there is a degree of flexibility, and can email more info re the (proto) elips project if i've not sent you info already.

Food (cake) & drinks available at the opening from 6pm.

This is a CALL (Culture Action Llandudno) project https://www.facebook.com/cultureactionllandudno/?fref=ts

dronesTruck Sound Art Exhibition

Como Park Shelter Hamline University Minneapolis USA

5:30-7:30 p.m 12/5/16

dronesTruck, a collaboration between Hamline University’s Digital Media Arts and English departments, will hold its first Sound Art Exhibition on Thursday, May 12 at Como Park Shelter from 5:30-7:30 p.m. dronesTruck serves as a tool to connect curriculum to community. The event will feature sound art pieces exploring the ways in which sound tells about the environment by creating an accessible public forum to advocate for sound art and artists.


In collaboration with Hamline University, pieces will sonically represent the partially unrepresentable world of the electromagnetic spectrum. In a public display via the university’s dronesTruck program, artists’ work will create community discussion on advancing the medium of sound art.

NoFit State and Pontio's BLAS project presents...

Mae Yna Le/There is a Place

Theatr Bryn Terfel, Pontio, Bangor

12-13/03/16


Where do you go when you daydream? To a back alley or a treehouse? Do you hide in an attic full of boxes or behind a big sofa? In a wardrobe or a basement full of rickety old chairs?
Is it a white space, like a blank canvas that you paint a different colour every time? Or is it dark and full of voices? Do you lay your head on pillow-fulls of words and music or hang upside down from a tree branch so you can see the world with different eyes?

This performance creates a place, a past, a sound, a pleasure, an image: unknown histories and unspoken memories and dreams. A highly visual, physical spectacle where theatre, circus, film and live music blend to make your heart soar skywards.

There is a place where I can touch, smell and feel my dreams.

How dare you call it unreal?

Conceived and created by Firenza Guidi, this is an exciting theatrical community event to celebrate the opening of Pontio in partnership with Pontio BLAS project, Canolfan Addysg y Bont, Ysgol Friars, Ysgol Bro Ddewi, Ysgol Hirael and Ysgol Glancegin as well as Ed Wright of Electroacoustics Wales. With thanks to all the poets who worked closely with Pontio to make the HaDAsyniaDA (Seeds of Ideas) project a reality and inspiration for ‘There is a Place’: Tudur Dylan, Karen Owen, Gerwyn Wiliams, Ed Holden, Sian Northey, Eurig Salisbury, Llion Jones and Dewi Pws.
