Symphony

Verity Standen

18 & 20-22 May, various times

Tuning forks are traditionally used for pitching – unheard by audiences – but up close they create beautiful, surprisingly resonate sounds as instruments in their own right. By blending these metallic tones with live voice, two performers create a vivid and unique sound world for an individual audience member.

This is a new short piece by Verity Standen, celebrated Bristol composer of Mmm Hmmm and the immersive choral piece HUG (winner of the Off-West End TBC Award 2016).

Sound rose and fell in waves until it felt as if I was drenched in music that had seeped its way into every organ in my body, and maybe even found my soul
