Paul K Joyce

Celestial

  • 18 June 2016 7-7:45pm

Celestial is a moving and uplifting collage of songs, words and projections created by composer, Paul K Joyce. This new work is inspired by the childhood poems of Johnnie Douglas-Pennant, many of which show him struggling to come to terms with the loss of his sister, Anna.

Celestial features singers, orchestra, synthesizers and natural sounds. Projections are by renowned filmmaker, Graham Gaunt. Poems of Johnnie Douglas-Pennant used by kind permission of his family.

This performance is linked to Voice(s) and Relic music performances by the theme of memories. Memories of loved ones and memories passed on by and to loved ones. The pieces express through the multi-disciplinary genres of music, words, film and sound the spirit, imagination and emotions of family bonds, secrets and histories.

Christopher Fox: Magnification
Scott Mc Laughlin: Snowflake
Michael Finnissy: Same as we
Nicholas Peters: Scantlebury

Juliet Fraser performs Voice(s), a programme for soprano and electronics that exploits the technology of pre-recorded tape parts and live manipulation to explore the interior worlds of memory, dreamings and identity. The central piece of the programme is Nicholas Peters' Scantlebury which sets his Grandad's spoken reminiscences of all the characters in his family, who were from Devonport, Plymouth, to music (?).

The development of the Voice(s) project has been supported by Arts Council England, the PRS Music Foundation, the Hinrichsen Foundation and the Ralph Vaughan Williams Trust.

This performance is linked to Celestial and Relic music performances by the theme of memories. Memories of loved ones and memories passed on by and to loved ones. The pieces express through the multi-disciplinary genres of music, words, film and sound the spirit, imagination and emotions of family bonds, secrets and histories.
