Call for Musicians
25 October 2010
Liverpool Philharmonic and Tate Liverpool are looking for musicians to join an unforgettable relay of sound travelling through the city.
This is your chance to play alongside members of the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra, and in many of the city's key music and art venues - all on the same night!
To mark the city-wide cultural celebration that is the Long Night, Tate Liverpool and the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic have come together to stage the Sound Relay, as part of Liverpool Biennial 2010.
Join the magnetic relay of sound as musicians including Ensemble 10/10 and the a.P.A.t.T. Orchestra perform a cumulative journey of musical happenings from Hope Street to the Albert Dock.
Inspired by the Tate Liverpool Touched exhibition as part of the Liverpool Biennial, and taking composer Jennifer Watson's Reflections as its focus, musicians create a series of surprising, experimental and reflexive happenings. Follow the Long Night trail as the procession gathers pace, picking up new musical material along the way. Starting at Liverpool Philharmonic Hall foyer at 7pm, the relay gathers momentum with performances at FACT and the Bluecoat before making its final journey to Tate Liverpool with music in the galleries, including in and around the installation of Magdalena\r\n
Abakanowicz's Embryology (1978–1980).
All instruments, abilities, styles and musical backgrounds welcome.\r\n
Over 18s only.\r\n
Due to the size of the ensemble, this is a voluntary event, and there are no fees or expenses available.\r\n
Rehearsals will be held on the evenings of 16th and 17th November. You need to be free for both.
