UNIT], the title of both the show and the name of the artists collective who have created it will be staged within a custom built 360 degree ‘surround stage’ of seven video screens and octophonic sound system housing both audience and performers. In this immersive multi-sensory environment the audience is presented with a heightened bodily experience. The audience are encouraged to walk around within the space which will affect both the sound and the visuals, meaning that they become an integral part of the compositional process and the performing experience. [UNIT] is a collaboration between Colchester based composer and musician Anthony Bailey, composer, sonic artist and electronic instrument builder Bill Vine and video artist Dan Tombs. Anthony has played with many professional orchestras, including the London Mozart Players, the Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment and the English Chamber Orchestra. Dan is a much in demand artist who also currently collaborates with Jon Hopkins, Gold Panda, East India Youth and The Charlatans. Vine and Bailey create music that is experimental yet accessible on a variety of wind and electronic instruments. This combines elements of classical composition with improvisation and spontaneous interaction with the audience. The performance will be recorded binaurally to give a 3D sound effect and a download link will be offered free of charge to all audience members. [UNIT] are associate artists of Norwich Arts Centre. It is supported by Arts Council England, Norwich Arts Centre, Escalator Music and Electronic Sound Magazine.
