Wintersound (2)

Parliament of Angels 2023
Canterbury Christ Church University, 2023

Canterbury is warmed from its midwinter chill during Wintersound by striking presentations and performances by local, national, and international sound makers, focusing on the newest of new music and sound. Wintersound continues its collaboration with Free Range, Canterbury Christ Church University and dynamic artists from across the EU, including BL!NDMAN [drums]. Wintersound is an event open to all with an interest in new music and sound.

Parliament of Angels, is the brand new initiative of BL!NDMAN that enters into a five-year trajectory with national and international partners, unites artists and students from the Canterbury Christ Church University, IRCAM & Lobster Films, Koninklijk Conservatorium The Hague, Beeldende Kunstacademie The Hague, Art of Sound The Hague & Art and Sience The Hague, MATA Festival NY and the Royal Conservatory of Antwerp. During residencies and workshops, students, artists, composers, musicians and curators will delve into predetermined themes and techniques. This will yield numerous new compositions over a period of five years and will provide the breeding ground for at least five productions. Each year, one partnership is central and this is represented by a curator who acts as a bridge figure between BL!NDMAN and its own institution.
