A trailer for the forthcoming film of As I Have Now Memoyre, featuring Linda Hirst and Natasha Lohan, is now online at the production website: www.nicholasbrown.co.uk/memoyre. The film is due for release in late-autumn 2012.
THE BRAVERY OF WOMEN will be performed/screened in New York and Alkmaar (NL) during Monica Germino‘s forthcoming tour of her ‘Plugged & Unplugged’ programme.
Two, related works will feature in this year’s Huddersfield Contemporary Music Festival. One is a transdisciplinary performance for concert-style presentation, the other is a domestic installation with ‘micro-performances’ that examines the demands of the former.
THE SOUL FINDS REST IN UNITY (2007) is an installation-performance in a domestic environment, in which violinist, Monica Germino, will reside for the duration of her stay in Huddersfield. Through video, sound, documents, drawings & micro-performances, this live installation theatricalizes the process of encountering my transdisciplinary work, THE BRAVERY OF WOMEN (2006-7), in terms of implications for the physical body and the violin-as-prosthesis. On 17 November, at 4 pm, Monica will give the first UK performance of this new work in her solo concert, PLUGGED & UNPLUGGED.
Information about these two events is available on the HCMF website.
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.
