Win tickets to see Touch’s Suffolk Symphony

Nathan Budzinski

Commissioned by Faster Than Sound and Aldeburgh Music, Suffolk Symphony is a special residency and new work by the self-styled sonic and visual production company Touch. Inspired by the historic coastline of Aldeburgh and its surrounding area, including Aldeburgh Music's rich history, Touch will create a new audio-visual symphony using only locally sourced sounds and images. Beginning on 16 August, Philip Jeck, BJ Nilsen, Jon Wozencroft, Philip Marshall and Mike Harding will go on a week-long treasure hunt in the area to unearth old records, field recordings, home-made sounds and images to create a new multimedia piece, culminating in its first performance on 22 August as part of the Snape Proms.

Directed by Mike Harding with sound by Philip Jeck and BJNilsen and images by Jon Wozencroft, the whole week will be documented for an interactive website by Philip Marshall. The residency will feature workshops and presentations by Philip Marshall and Mike Harding, including interviews with the other artists and a Touch showcase, culminating in the performance which will take place in the recently converted industrial space of Snape’s Hoffmann Building. Suffolk Symphony will be subsequently released through Touch.
