KINETIC & Vonnegut Collective present: SPACE//SENSE (PART 1) YouTube Premiere
Last summer, KINETIC Manchester and Vonnegut Collective presented collaborative project SPACE//SENSE — a two-part concert series exploring physical space, spatial perceptions and sensory phenomena, within two very contrasting venues.
The first concert at TAKK (a converted shipping container at HATCH, Oxford Road), explored physical restrictions and limitations, but also attempted to create a perception of the opposite – vastness. The programme featured two pieces: David Pocknee’s thoroughly entertaining political statement Economics (2010; 2017 version), whereby the landing of objects determines musical decisions, and Overcast by Nina Whiteman (KINETIC commission), transforming the tiny cafe space and delivering an immersive, ultra-delicate and reflective experience.
We had a really awesome time — the memories are strong, and on Monday 11th May we’ll be reliving this event and providing an opportunity for those who didn’t attend to virtually experience it. And all from the comfort of your own home! We’ll also have a little chat section so feel free to say hello 🙂
It is encouraged that viewing takes place in a dark room with minimal background noise. If alone, listen through headphones for an optimal experience.
Looking forward – “see” you there!
