Faster Than Sound presents ‘Game’, with the Modified Toy Orchestra

Friday 19th October 2012

Aldeburgh’s experimental series Faster Than Sound joins the dots between musical genres and digital art forms, providing artists with a rare and inspirational space to create and perform.

On November 17th, composer Richard Baker will collaborate with Brian Duffy and the Modified Toy Orchestra to explore the hidden voices of toys, investigating their potential and what they suggest musically. With the use of toy instruments and electronic toys as the basis for their composition, Baker and Duffy will aim to create a work inspired by the electronic melodies of these modified machines. With help from the Modified Toy Orchestra they will hack in to and manipulate the potential from abandoned children’s toys. This Faster Than Sound residency will create an innovative experience for both participants and audience in this musical adventure.

Do not miss Faster Than Sound at Britten Studio, Snape, on 17th November 2012 at 8pm, with a pre-event talk at 6:30pm at Jerwood Kiln Studio, Snape.
