Wysing Arts Centre, Cambridge
18 May, 2019.
Wysing's studio artist Emma Smith has transformed Bluecoat’s gallery into a sonic chamber for collective singing in this ground-breaking new sound installation by Emma Smith, based on the music of social communication. Euphonia is an interactive sound work illustrating how we unconsciously make music through interlocking rhythms, pitch and tone when we engage in friendly interactions - such as chitchat with friends. Smith will draw from sounds created by the many people who visit Bluecoat on a daily basis –parents and babies, visitors to the café and the choirs and groups who rehearse there in the evenings.
We are also delighted to announce a partnership with Primary in Nottingham and HOME in Manchester to bring the work of Emma Smith to the three cities. The tour will include an exhibition of Smith’s work 5Hz at Primary, Nottingham, Fri 30 Nov 2018 – Sat 9 Feb 2019; 5Hz and Euphonia at HOME, Manchester, Sat 6 Apr 2019 – Sun 19 May 2019; and a live performance at Wysing Arts Centre, Cambridge on 18 May, 2019.
The partnership is the result of a successful bid to Arts Council England’s Strategic Touring Fund and will enable the venues to connect with community groups through workshops with the artist, both in venue and in the community.
