Meat cleaver music and other sonic adventures from the Pitt Rivers Museum


 


 From beguiling sounds of ancient Chinese Pigeon Whistles, to Sonic Visualisers, evocative rainforest soundscapes and bronze tuned musical meat cleavers. Follow Nathaniel Mann’s woven trail through his Pitt Rivers sonic adventuring with story and song.

 

Joining him on the night is the UK’s finest avant-folk performance outfit Dead Rat Orchestra. This trio of adventurers sold out in Oxford in summer 2012 and have collaborated closely with Eric Chenaux, Baby Dee and C Joynes, and toured extensively with Godspeed You Black Emperor.

 

“Luxuriant facial hair aside, Dead Rat Orchestra are far from your typical modern-day folk outfit. To describe them as such would be to undermine their commitment to sonic exploration, with the folk aspect being a mere springboard for their inventive multi-instrumentalist approach.”The Quietus.

 


 

This special event marks the end of Nathaniel’s residency with Pitt Rivers Museum and OCM, showcasing an ensemble performance of his latest project “Rough Music”, bridging the contrasting musical worlds of Work Song, Indonesian Gamelan and the pealing of church bells.

 

Immersed in the unique ethnographic collections of Pitt Rivers Museum and with the support of OCM’s extraordinary networks of sound artists and musicians, Nathaniel Mann has spent 18 monthsEmbedded with PRM and OCM as part of Sound and Music’s Composer in Residence programme.

"Spending a year and a half embedded within the Pitt Rivers and OCM has allowed me to explore the importance of both global and local sound culture. My response has been to develop a series of eccentric works and events designed to share and explore these themes. The Rough Music concert on the 29th will be a chance to share this journey through story and song" Nathaniel Mann 

 

 

This event is part of Audiograft 2014 festival.
