--------------------------

Commissioned for Journeys Festival International Leicester, Enharmonic is a series of works which look at traditions in music and sound, informed by the history of All Saints’ Church and the stories of refugees and asylum seekers.

After being left redundant for years, All Saints' Church will be reanimated with sonic work, allowing the listener to explore the resonant architecture and its rich history. In addition to a sound installation occupying the space, there will be a series of performances on the closing night. This will include a debut of an original composition written for the project, and musical improvisations based on graphic scores by the artist.

Ondes Martenot - Josh Semans
Piano - Anne Heney
Viola - Elizabeth Paling
Cello - John Bean
Double Bass - Alison Bean
Conductor - Willard Welsford

Exhibition
Monday 19 – Sunday 25 August
2.00pm – 7.00pm

Working with sound as both a medium and a subject, artist Miriam Bean primarily creates indeterminate installations and experiments with ways of translating audio into images. Her research into sound perception ranges from physiology to musicology, seeking to understand how the brain interprets some sounds as noise and others as expressive, concordant music. Through spatial intervention, her work highlights the unearthly nature of pure tones, and the acoustic qualities they possess.
