AGNA RITA
Published 20 October 2015 by JT


Hallo ,
I am nearly there to the performance and exhibition of my new work Agna Rita .
I installed the work in the Lincoln collection at the weekend and was very happy with the set up and very grateful to all that were involved.

The work consists of 4 long works that have either been taken from text from the Magna carter or are a representation of metaphors concerning freedom.

Today ( 20th of October 2015) a radio interview with Kate Hanstall is being broadcast on Resonance FM at 8 pm about the use of landscape within my work. Within Agna Rita I am composing large landscapes of sound which I map over 22 channels of speakers on the Soundwall in the Lincoln Collection.

The tracks are as follows

1. Liberty
2. We will not deny
3. Our Noise
4. Granted

The work is being performed between 12 and 3 everyday from the 23rd of October till the 1st of November at the Lincoln Collection, in Lincoln. I am very grateful to PRS Foundation, Arts Council of England, Britten Pears trust and the Lincoln Collection for supporting the work.Threshold have commissioned the work.
