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.

Geoff Poole and Jean-Paul Metzger will be composing pieces inspired by Zhang Enli’s Four Season’s exhibition at Hauser & Wirth, while a collaboration between composer Julian Leeks and artist Fiona Robinson will present a developing conversation between the two art forms, as each creates a response to the other’s work.

Zhang Enli"s new work goes directly on the wall of the H&W gallery. Geoff Poole's new quartet will be his response to this work.

The concert will also see the premières of new work by two outstanding postgraduate composition students written in response to work in the Ingram Collection of Modern British Art and two further responses to Enli’s work, will be written by to two of the most promising composers studying A’Level music at local schools.

The programme will be performed by the Bristol Ensemble String Quartet.
