It brings together eight new collaborative works by composers, film-makers and archaeologists from across Europe and the Americas.
Works include world premier of new film and live performance on the 'sound stages' of Valcamonica rock-art site in Alpine Italy, directed by British-Austrian film-maker Fredrick Baker; film and composition from Orkney by Aaron Watson and John Was; composition "Unnamed" for solo flute by Mexican composer Mauricio Rodriguez, created by Mexican soloist Wilfrido Tarrazas and 3D animated sound-field model and composition "Stonehenge Ritual Sound" by Rupert Till and Andrew Taylor.
FOR ONE NIGHT ONLY. This event is not to be missed. BOOK NOW!
