A collection of new sound installations by student composers which variously explore the rich and complex sounds of vibrating strings. Audiences move freely through the sprawling rooms of The Ditch, following their ears as they encounter a network of interconnected sound works designed specifically for the space.
There is no need to book tickets for this event.
Audiences are welcome to experience Vibrations anytime between 12pm – 2.30pm and 4.30pm – 7pm; due to limited capacities, entry will operate on a first-come, first-served basis.
This event is part of the Royal Academy of Music's The Art of Chaos, presented in association with Shoreditch Town Hall.
Taking Kurt Weill's The Threepenny Opera as a catalyst, the Royal Academy of Music presents a subterranean festival of new music, The Art of Chaos. A series of site specific events unfold over three days including new works for voices and ensemble, a cabaret show of political song, an evening of brand new music from composition students and a series of sound installations inviting the listener to explore the labyrinth of rooms that make up The Ditch. And running over the three days, the result of a collaboration between UWE film-makers and Academy composers, six new experimental animation films influenced by the Weimar Republic that re-examine and illuminate intimate spaces around The Ditch.
