Join us for a unique experience. The Forty Part Motet (A reworking of “Spem in Alium” by Thomas Tallis 1573)
Forty separately recorded voices are played back through forty speakers strategically placed throughout the space.
Comments by the artist:
"While listening to a concert you are normally seated in front of the choir, in traditional audience position. With this piece I want the audience to be able to experience a piece of music from the viewpoint of the singers. Every performer hears a unique mix of the piece of music. Enabling the audience to move throughout the space allows them to be intimately connected with the voices. It also reveals the piece of music as a changing construct. As well I am interested in how sound may physically construct a space in a sculptural way and how a viewer may choose a path through this physical yet virtual space.
