the operatic revolution starts here!
Tête à Tête receives PRSF Biennial Award 2014We’re very happy to announce that Tête à Tête is one of 20 organisations selected from 130 applications for the PRSF Biennial 2014.
Blending skateboarding, choral singing and the unique acoustic of skate parks, Tête à Tête and composer Samuel Bordoli will team up with skaters and community choirs to make a real noise in London, Aberdeen and Glasgow.
As well as composing two commissions for Tête à Tête, New World (words Mark Ravenhill, 2011) and Amerika (2012), Samuel Bordoli is the founding genius behind Live Music Sculpture. A live music sculpture is a natural progression from the conventional way of experiencing and conceiving music. It is a form where we can explore the relationship we have with our own ears and the endless acoustic possibilities of sound and the impact it can have upon linear or spatially conceived structures It blends together the ideas of music, time, sculpture and space. A very natural springboard to explore the acoustic and sounds of skate parks in music.
