A special acousmatic concert

Posted: September 24, 2018 in News

A Shot in the Dark
Exeter Phoenix, Thursday 18 October 2018 at 8pm. £8 (£5 students, concessions & under 18s). Tickets here.
In total darkness, diverse groups of musicians – drawn from Exeter’s classical, jazz, folk, noise and student ensembles – interpret a musical score burned into their retinas via a series of digital flashguns. Their eyes shut, the score at first seems clear enough, allowing for deeply musical coherence. But as the afterimage decays, the sounds threaten to dissolve into din. Gradually the unseen instrumentation becomes clear and patterns form, only to fragment when some new and unexpected performer enters the acousmatic picture. Conceived by BASCA award winning sound artist Ed Baxter (Resonance Radio Orchestra, Japanorama, Turntable Hell, Feedback: Order from Noise) and arranged in collaboration with curator-composer Emma Welton (A Quiet Night In, Icebreaker), A Shot in the Dark is commissioned by University of Exeter Arts & Culture as part of Exeter Sound Context.
Be there!
