Open Bridges Summer Solstice ‘Moments in Time’ Live Performance

Friends, would you like to come to the special summer solstice live performance of the Open Bridges music? It’s a quadraphonic 20 minute performance of the musique concrete soundtrack by the composer John Stead to accompany the film at Beverley Treasure House and Art Gallery, East Yorkshire, Thursday, 21 June, at 6.30 pm for 7.00 pm start. It will be over before 8pm. It’s an informal occasion, to gather and enjoy the music in the gallery space – and a chance to hear the musique concrete which accompanies the beautiful Open Bridges film, very different and atmospheric. Free entry, but it would be helpful if you’d let us know if you’d like to come.

Open Bridges

There will be a live quadraphonic performance of the Open Bridges music – ‘Moments in Time’ – by the composer John Stead to accompany the Open Bridges film at Beverley Treasure House and Art Gallery, East Riding of Yorkshire, on Thursday, 21 June, at 6.30 pm for 7.00 pm start. The event will be finished by 8 o’clock and is free of charge. It is an informal occasion, just to gather and enjoy the music in the gallery space.

BAFTA winning composer John Stead will diffuse the especially commissioned musique concrete work – recorded using natural sounds to form a montage – to accompany the film, which has been showing in Beverley Art Gallery this month. John recorded and included sounds from the River Hull’s journey from Beverley to Hull, including the sounds of the bridges moving.
