So, it’s been another couple of months, and seemingly there hasn’t been a great deal going on in camp temp0rary. In reality, there’s been a significant amount of discussion, meetings and planning, the results of some of which can be shared now.
The big news is that I recently decided to end my part-time teaching contract so that I could focus on other music projects. This has resulted in some excellent meeting of minds in Cheltenham and a couple of forthcoming events.
Firstly, temp0rary are delighted to announce that we will be performing a long-form performance as part of Wilson Art Gallery’s Takeover event on Saturday 18th June. Our performance is scheduled to be in the late afternoon / early evening and will be using the same silent disco headphone setup we used for our collaboration with Tempting Failure at Latitude Festival last year. It’s part of a free event and there’s loads of other interesting stuff scheduled as part of the day so come along and pay us a visit!
Secondly, we’re getting involved with the fringe of Cheltenham Music Festival which takes place from 1st – 17th July in varying capacities. Firstly, I am currently doing some work modifying and augmenting a full gamelan orchestra, which I will be adding electronic elements to under the direction of some young people as part of Wilson Art Group. The performance will take place on Saturday 9th July and will feature some traditional gamelan followed by our mad experiments!
Then temp0rary play a site specific performance as part of an event called Sunset Lumiere – this will be a site-specific performance taking place at dusk in the secret Skillicorne Garden on Saturday 16th July with lights, projections and music, and again will be a free event.
There’s more coming soon, including some exciting collaborations and music un unexpected places, we’ll keep you informed.
