April 16, 2014, 1pm, 2pm and 3pm – Margate, Kent
Sounds Like Art: LANDSCAPES (Debut)
Led by composer and musical director Emily Peasgood, Sounds Like Art is a brand new innovative project which aims to explore connections between art and music. Featuring new music, choirs, unique instrumental collaborations and the artworks of both historically significant and contemporary artists, the project seeks to challenge perceptions of art and music, examining how music can influence our interpretation and response to art in new and inspiring ways.
The project commences with the composition and performance of Landscapes, an ethereal new choral work inspired by the creative genius of the great nineteenth century landscape painter JMW Turner, and the abstract paintings of American Artist Helen Frankenthaler.
A choir of 70 voices: The Big Sing will perform the piece.
The performance is free of charge and a sign language interpreter will be present. On this day Turner Contemporary also celebrate their 3rd birthday and there will be a wide selection of celebratory events to attend.
