Rainbow Book Screening | Birdboxes

On June 11, 2007, I’ll be making an installation and giving a live performance for OCM (Oxford Contemporary Music) at The Jam Factory, Oxford.

The installation will be AN AUDIENCE WITH THE TREES (2005). Using six, musical birdboxes, this work transforms Vivaldi’s Four Seasons into birdsong, via my violin concerto of 2003, Vivaldi’s Menagerie.

I’ll also be performing my 1999 pianowork, THE RAINBOW BOOK, for which I’ve recently made a series of short videoworks. Each video is designed to be controlled by the live performance of each piece of music. Overall, the work addresses the physiological effect of colour on the human eye, according to Goethe’s Theory of Colours.
