CONNECT Workshop

The evening of Wednesday 18 May marked the beginning of our CONNECT creative journey with a workshop led by British composer Christian Mason.

CONNECT, supported by ART MENTOR FOUNDATION LUCERNE, is a pan-European project uniting four leading ensembles with two composers to develop new ways of engaging with audiences.

This very first workshop invited members of the public to help develop Christian Mason’s commission In the Midst of the Sonorous Islands. Premiered in London on Saturday 22 October before being performed across Europe through the autumn, Christian hopes to immerse his audience in a range of metallic and blown sounds using triangles, tin foil, baoding balls and bottles. These sounds will mirror the instruments played by our professional London Sinfonietta percussionists, with every person contributing a vital element to the sound world on stage.

Here are some photographs taken in the workshop:

CONNECT is an initiative generously supported by ART MENTOR FOUNDATION LUCERNE in collaboration with London Sinfonietta, Ensemble Modern, Asko|Schönberg and Remix Ensemble Casa da Música.
