April LIVE dates

Jobina Tinnemans as BLATNOVA’ establishes a magical biotope where acoustic ecology, science fiction, minimalism, sound processing and songwriting can coexist peacefully next to each other. From this recipe Jobina cooks up a weird alchemy: while you’re listening you will discover a little door in the speakers of your soundsystem. You pass and enter a new universe.’

April 8 – CAM’17 Festival Cardiff, Sunflower&I  – experimental music festival curated by Gwenno Saunders, do check it out if you are in the area.

April 21 – Disconcert event, St.Paul’s Church, Worthing

April 29 – John Grant’s North Atlantic Flux: ‘Sounds from the Smoky Bay’ music festival in Hull UK Capital of Culture 2017

 

It’s a cross-genre programme on grand piano with electronics, field recordings and page turners on multiple speakers. I found that the best way to explain the concept to myself was by adopting the moniker ‘Jobina Tinnemans as BLATNOVA‘ inspired by etched illustrations of a Shakespeare’s ‘Henry V’ version with ‘Laurence Olivier as King Henry‘ I noticed on a friend’s very nicely decorated toilet.  Noisy experimental music and delicate song writing.
…or was it the other way round?

Each concert has it’s own poster. Why? Why not.

ALSO IN APRIL ‘REFLECTIONS OVER VERISIMILITUDE’ COMING TO THE UK AT HULL CAPITAL OF CULTURE #HULL’17

Sunday April 30th – City Hall, 2.30pm

‘Reflections over Verisimiltude’ is for choir and electronics, with mesmerising visuals by Jacob Tekiela, staged in the City Hall which is a magnificent venue. This is going to be good!
The concert is part of John Grant’s ‘North Atlantic Flux: Sounds from the Smoky Bay’ music festival programme.

About ‘Reflections over Verisimiltude’: last year I spent much time in Iceland collaborating with the South Iceland Chamber Choir and film maker Jacob Tekiela for my Moving Classics commission, produced by Curated Place. It premiered at the Cycle Festival in Kopavógur in October last year and received great appraisal. Supported by the PRS Foundation for Music we are adding a Hull edition to this concert for the cultural celebrations which are taking place during Hull’17.

Iceland and Hull have a long seafaring history together and this edition of ‘Reflections over Verisimilitude’ connects the people on both bays, as their echoes reflect over the ocean surface to each other. Voices of origin, wonder, despair, hope and love. Voices of Life.
