The UK Young Artists Leicester Festival set to light up the city with creative talent from across the UK
Three days of exhibitions, performances, installations, gigs, poetry and workshops take place across the city at established venues and independent spaces.
Of particular interest for MTI/MTP:
Joe Snape – Lärmlicht #5
A music performance that takes place in the dark. Set against their own amplified sounds and accompanied by a warped ensemble of celesta and vibraphone, six incandescent light bulbs flicker and bloom into life. With each flash painstakingly programmed on a machine built from scratch, materials are arranged, cued and manipulated in live performance: the seen and the heard strain against each other to fuse in a single audiovisual event. Sharp impulses, electrical bursts, afterimages and delay lines fold into one another, brutal and reflective by turns. The work was first performed in spring 2014 at Café Oto and The Kitchen.
Friday 7 November – De Montfort University (PACE Building) – 5.30pm and 9.30pm
