Warning Notes by Mark Anderson

Warning Notes by Mark Anderson

As day turns to night, immerse yourself in a captivating sound world and ever changing outdoor live performance. Using an ensemble of visually striking mechanical ‘instruments’ - gongs, bells, whistles and explosive events - Warning Notes creates a rich and powerful soundscape that gives voice to the current social and ecological alarm that ripples across our world.

A new show by international artist Mark Anderson, created in collaboration with Liam Walsh, that is improvised and responsive to audience and environment, Warning Notes is playful and hypnotic, inviting us to listen to the present and contemplate both personal and global stories - and our future together.

“A pulsing, gorgeous and threatening world woven out of sound sculptures and beautiful, rhythmic notes” - Audience

“The future has become uninhabitable. Such hopelessness can arise, I think, only from an inability to face the present, to live in the present, to live as a responsible being among other beings in this sacred world here and now, which is all we have, and all we need, to found our hope upon.” - Ursula Le Guin

FREE OUTDOOR EVENT: 12+13 APRIL, 2024 @ 5PM FOR APPROX 4 HOURS - drop in any time during the performance and stay as long as you like!

Funded by the Arts Council of Wales. Co-commissioned and co-presented by OCM.
