OCM present a new collaboration exploring sound and image, old and new, conventional and self-made musical instruments. What happens when technology becomes obsolete? RITUAL IN TRANSFIGURED TIME combines sounds and images from the 1940s, technologies developed in the 1950s, and the unique resonances of salvaged objects in a journey through the improbable soundscapes of the past century. Set alongside new works from Arlene Sierra and Kathy Hinde, the ensemble explores the ‘newness of the old’ and the strangeness of our technological archaeology. The concert held at OVADA will also be a very rare chance to hear Varese’s 1958 Poème électronique, one of the early masterpieces of electronic music and image, in a new performance.
Cost: £14 (£10 concessions)
