Cutting edge music, sound and visual arts

A series of evenings celebrating the best new thinking within contemporary music, spoken word, sound and visual arts, launches at Bexhill’s De La Warr Pavilion.

Friday, 5th April 2013, 6:00 am

Dear Serge is an homage to architect Serge Chermayeff who, with Erich Mendelsohn, won the competition to design the modernist De La Warr Pavilion in 1935.

The launch event will run from 2pm to 10pm and focus on the concept of synthesis-the combination of parts to form a whole.

The programme will include Facing Ron Geesin, where the audience is invited to watch the manic expressive at play with a vibrant probing of the ether through piano, banjos, bass-xylophone, percussion and throat.

Ian Helliwell: Practical Electronica will see the artist exhibiting various light and sound sculptures around the building.

At Her Music is a solo work by Ellen Southern combining live and recorded voices performed within a camera obscura.

The Spirit of Gravity is a Brighton-based sonic arts collective has created Electrocreche, a table filled with all sorts of sound emitting equipment that anyone can approach and play.

The SafeGrav Orchestra (an improvised synthesizer orchestra) featuring Video Synthesis by Bartosz Dylewski will provide a treat for the eyes and ears.
