Postcards from Eyemouth
Sat 22 April 2017, 19:30 – 21:30 BST
Performance and Exhibition Launch
Produced and curated by Jacob Thompson-Bell and Nick Katuszonek, Postcards from Eyemouth presents an evening of brand new music and visuals inspired by photographs, sound recordings, and reflections on Eyemouth from local residents, collected through community meetings, postcard correspondence and workshops at the high school and primary school.
We’ve created musical scores in response to all the contributions we’ve collected, and we’re bringing up a team of incredible young musicians from Leeds College of Music to perform them.
The event also launches our Postcards from Eyemouth exhibition, featuring the scores and contributions side by side. Hear unique musical performances and see how local reflections and perspectives have become part of our work. Audiences will also be able to pick up copies of our limited edition postcard scores, specially released as part of the project.
Postcards from Eyemouth is a collaboration between musicians Jacob Thompson-Bell and Nick Katuszonek and Eyemouth Hippodrome, in association with Leeds College of Music.
The project is supported by the Open Project Fund through Creative Scotland, and by funding from Leeds College of Music. Find out more: postcardsfromeyemouth.com
