Simone Salvatici, Will Plowman, Throwing Snow, Lukas Wigflex
Multimodal presents a one-off audio-visual journey, from ambient tones, through rhythmical melodies, to an expansive crescendo.
From the sold-out four-wall projection in the One Thoresby Street Attic to the AV quadraphonic dome with Wigflex & Craig Richards, Multimodal creates bespoke, conceptual and visually immersive experiences.
For this event, a hand-picked selection of artists will be presenting a unique evening of live, experimental music performances alongside bespoke visual art.
The evening will begin with the ambient tonal soundscape of multi-instrumentalist Simone Salvatici, progressing into the minimalist synthesiser compositions of Will Plowman with live visual oscilligraphics by Rich Wood.
For the first time, Throwing Snow and Matt Woodham will perform a brand-new live AV show layering tones and rhythms to an energetic climax - alongside a custom-built sculptural light installation in collaboration with artist Alex Pain.
The evening will conclude with a new phase conducted by the masterful hands of Lukas Wigflex, winding through experimental, ambient and beat-driven dance.
Multimodal’s Into Abstraction is part of Sensing Systems, a multidisciplinary exhibition and event programme celebrating the beauty of system dynamics in nature. Sensing Systems is supported using public funding by Arts Council England.
Commissioned by Bonington Gallery, Matt Woodham’s exhibition (http://www.boningtongallery.co.uk/exhibitions/sensing-systems) will run from 15th February – 28th March. The accompanying event-series will take place across Nottingham with partner organisations Nottingham Contemporary, Near Now and Metronome.
