Music and Art: 1

Sun 7th Jun
7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

Royal West of England Academy of Art
Queen's Rd

How does one define the relationship between music and art? How might a work of visual art be re-imagined as music?

NMSW has invited composers to create new music in response to the work of contemporary artists for a concert exploring the interface between music and art.

The concert will feature the premières of new pieces by Geoff Poole, Jean-Paul Metzger and Litha Efthymiou written in response to work in the Ingram Collection of Modern British Art and to the work of Shanghai based artist Zhang Enli. A collaboration between composer Julian Leeks and RWA Academician Fiona Robinson will present a developing conversation between the two art forms, as each creates a response to the other’s work.

The programme will also feature György Ligeti and Hildur Guðnadóttir and will be performed by the Bristol Ensemble String Quartet.
