BANDLI (SWINGS)

We all love to swing – whether we admit it or not! BANDLI builds upon this instinctive mode of entertainment to create an interactive sound installation. Each swing is equipped with a motion sensor so that music is triggered through the swinging action. Furthermore, different instruments are assigned to the eight swings so that the whole structure functions like a music ensemble that is brought to life through the interactive engagement of the public.

Using ropes and harnesses the performers work safely to present…

Re-(W)Rite of Spring!

RNCM Big Band, directed by Mike Hall There is no disputing that Stravinsky’s Le Sacre du Printemps is the epitome visceral energy, with The Adoration of the Earth portraying a celebration of spring and of becoming one with the earth, and The Sacrifice being based on the Chosen One (the virgin)’s sacrifice. It is colourful, passionate and raw. The RNCM Big Band’s performance of Darryl Brenzel’s arrangement of this will bring out the freedom, the crude rhythmic, irregular pulse, the…
