I wanted to create the loneliest situation that I could think of and ended up with a single woman accompanying herself singing very sad music. The electronic track is the singers voice singing the word “so”, which is followed by the singer singing (live) the word “lonely”. She also were the loudspeaker around her neck, so the entire piece “comes from her”. The piece was commissioned by BCMG for Birmingham Weekender Festival 2015. In collaboration with Stan’s Cafe it was staged in an empty shop unit in the city centre. It seemed fitting to repeat this piece for the closure of the Conservatoire building.
CODA is a two-day Festival to celebrate the closure of the old Birmingham Conservatoire building.
On 19th and 20th June there will be concerts at 11am, 1pm, 3pm, 5pm, 7pm, 9pm, 11pm
