The 20/19 Project: Apart and Together
In this compelling new series, we present a variety of answers to this question through sound, film, discussion and drawing. Central to The 20/19 Project is the transformational shift in culture over the last one hundred years through the lens of music and in particular, the viola.
The headline shows at Westgate Hall, a former drill hall in Canterbury, feature three outstanding viola sonatas of 1919 by composers Rebecca Clarke, Paul Hindemith and Ernest Bloch, and at Turner Contemporary in Margate, three UK premieres by some of the most persuasive and individual composers of our time. Knitting these together is a new audio-visual work by Ana Quiroga and Pedro Maia, using archive film and field recordings of East Kent.
For Apart and Together, the new creative arts building is occupied in a maze of performance, discussion and student groups reimagining accepted musical narratives.
