On Friday October 3rd, we return to Tate Britain to present our second Late at Tate in five years, entitled Made in Transition.The focus for this Late is the new architecture and spaces of Tate Britain, which has just undergone a whopping £50 million redesign. A particular highlight is the now magisterial Rotunda, which will feature three performances of Alejandro Viñao‘s piece for soprano and tape, Hildegard’s Dream, as performed by Sarah Dacey and the composer (below). Three pieces by seminal electronic composer Paul Lansky (Idle Chatter, just_more_idle_chatter and notjustmoreidlechatter) are featured in a Sonic Trail which spans the length and breadth of the Gallery.
Kaleidoscopic sonic transformations respond to selected artworks and Paul has written a new introduction to accompany the trail. His music has been sampled by Radiohead in recent times and for those interested in taking on his ‘spot the sample’ challenge, there’s more info here.
This Late at Tate is in partnership with PRS for Music Foundation and marks the end of their New Music Plus programme, which has seen emerging producers partner with various arts organisations around the country. CP’s own, Will Dutta, was partnered with Tate back in 2009 so it is with great pleasure that we are back with the team and presenting a number of fellow New Music Plus producers’ work.Prior to the evening event is a symposium exploring the development of interdisciplinary practice. The stellar line-up includes Matthew Herbert, Jem Finer, United Visual Artists’ Matthew Clark and Artangel’s Michael Morris amongst others and you can buy tickets here.
Late at Tate is a free, bi-monthly programme of events featuring music, film, fashion and live performance. See here for details of the full line-up.
