A pianist of ‘amazing power and panache’ (The Telegraph), Clare Hammond is renowned for her performances of contemporary music. Her latest project features two new commissions, both featuring film shorts as a backdrop to the music. Ken Hesketh’s score, specially written for Clare, accompanies the expressionist film Hände; while Ed Hughes’s The Nose is a new score to a short film inspired by Nikolai Gogol’s dream-like story of a government official whose nose goes missing.
Keyboard Inventions – with its nod towards J.S. Bach’s works of the same name – celebrates Satie’s legacy as the trailblazer, the architect of change in the way the piano has been played and written for since his own lifetime. Whether it’s the minimalist piano, the ‘prepared’ piano, the piano’s role in multimedia explorations or the wider bounds of ‘conceptual art’, Satie was there at the beginning.
This Cheltenham focus not only showcases the widest possible range of Satie’s own output; his multimedia influence is brought right up to date with avatars, synths, animation, wearable tech, new scores for old films and an inside-out pendulum piano.
Parabola Arts Centre is located in a Grade II listed building in the glamorous Montpellier district of Cheltenham. The centre was built as a facility for students of Cheltenham Ladies’ College and to be used as a public arts centre by the local community.
The original, listed Bayshill House was transformed into a gallery, bar and foyer area. The villa also houses all the rehearsal spaces, offices, video editing suite, dance studio and library. This means that the regular activity of the building takes place in the light, beautifully restored listed building.
