Musarc presents: Pond Corpse
Join Musarc + Jack Sheen + Standard Issue for a Saturday afternoon concert and drinks at Rose Lipman Building, De Beauvoir Town, on Saturday 29 April 2023, 5.30–7pm, followed by drinks.
Pond Corpse is Musarc’s second collaboration with composer and conductor Jack Sheen. The programme brings together new works by artists and composers Eleanor Cully Boehringer, Haunted Network Research Initiative and Jack Sheen, and developed alongside a series of vocal practice and workshop sessions with singer and performer Patricia Auchterlonie.
As a body of works, Pond Corpse resembles an exquisite organism, animated by different identities at different times. At one time it is small and gentle, listening in on itself, watching snow-drop semi-tones spiralling quietly out of a conch shell. It is grotesquely funny and wild at other times, a cryptozoological creature that worms, gargles and hums. At other times yet it becomes space, long and wide, hung up in networks and small devices, quietly mumbling to itself: Jesu, meine Freude …
The programme is part of the ensemble’s commitment to commissioning, broadcasting and touring new and experimental choral music. Pond Corpse will be recorded by Resonance Extra – the UK’s only 24/7 digital broadcasting platform dedicated to sound art, radio art and experimental musics. The recording session runs all day, and opens to a live audience at 5.30pm.
