This year, as Wysing Arts Centre turns 30, we are delighted to invite Somerset House Studios to guest curate Wysing Polyphonic, our annual festival of music and sound.

The 2019 programme will consider the idea of connection, moving beyond the Cambridgeshire site as a place where artists meet and experiment to consider connection beyond the physical: connection as a channel of communication; an incantation, returning, or heralding; the calling on an ‘other’ or unknown to understand different worlds and possibilities.

Ahmed El Ghazoly – also known as Cairo producer and multi-instrumentalist Zuli – will be one of two artists in residence developing performances for Wysing Polyphonic throughout August. Returning as extended Polyphonic family will be Jennifer Walshe, Valentina Magaletti and Beatrice Dillon, Dillon presenting a unique b2b set with current Studios ‘curator in residence’ Tabitha Thorlu-Bangura (NTS). Both Flora Yin-Wong and Somerset House Studio alumni Erica Scourti will be performing newly commissioned works, and current residents AMRA will present their commissioned performance from the Studio’s 2018 Assembly series.

Somerset House Studios and Wysing Arts Centre have worked closely together since the Studios launched in 2016, sharing a joint ambition to support experimental work across disciplines, and to connect a network of artists beyond the duration of any residency. The 2019 edition of Wysing Polyphonic marks the first time the two organisations have collaborated to support the creation of new works.

In partnership with The Wire.
