Commissioned for Journeys Festival 2019, Enharmonic is a series of works which look at the universal language of music through the extraordinary stories of refugees and asylum seekers.
After being left redundant for years, All Saints Church will be reanimated with sonic work, allowing the listener to explore the resonant architecture and its rich history. In addition to the sound installation occupying every corner of the interior, there will be a debut performance of an original composition on the closing night of the exhibition, featuring ondes Martenot, piano, and strings.
Exhibition: 20th - 25th August, 2:00pm - 7:00pm
Live Performance: Sun 25th August, 7.30pm (tickets are free, but booking is required)
Working with sound as both a medium and a subject, Leicester-based artist Miriam Bean primarily creates indeterminate installations alongside musical investigations. Her research into sound perception ranges from physiology to musicology, seeking to find reasons why the brain interprets some sounds as jarring noise and others as expressive, concordant music.
This event is supported by the National Lottery through the Heritage Lottery Fund & Arts Council England. It is part of a programme of activity aimed at sharing history and stories of Leicester’s All Saints Church with new audiences, supporting ArtReach’s aim to make All Saints a creative refuge in the heart of the city.
