Byre World 2022: Writing Noises - Free but please book in advance
Writing Noises: Ramón Gómez de la Serna and Arseny Avraamov's Symphony of Sirens
Wednesday 6 April, 6.30pm – Free, but please book in advance
European artists in the 1920s are seeking the abolition of all barriers: art in all forms should inform life, and art should have no other boundaries but life itself. In 1922, the Russian composer Avraamov reconfigured the everyday life of the workers in the city of Bakú (then in the Soviet Union) as a musical performance, and from Madrid the quintessential Spanish avant-garde writer Ramón Gómez de la Serna (1888-1963), celebrated it. Dr Fernandez will reinterpret Avraamov ́s collage of sounds with the words of the writer. The active participation of the audience is required.
