The McIntire Department of Music presents a colloquium by Nathaniel Mann on Friday, February 6 2015, 3:30pm at 107 Old Cabell Hall. This event is free and open to the public.
Described as capturing “a fluid unfolding of the museum experience” (ATTN Mag) whilst “standing vigorously on its own strange legs” (The Wire), composer, performer and sound artist Nathaniel Mann was embedded Composer-in-Residence at the Pitt Rivers Museum, University of Oxford, in 2013-14. Nathaniel will discuss his work exploring and creating sound and music in / from and beyond the museum and its ethnographic collections. Expect bronze casting, pigeons, polyphonic staple guns, musical torch light trails, and more startling delights.
Nathaniel Mann is an award-winning musician, composer and artist whose interdisciplinary research-driven practice has been performed at international residencies and tours from Europe to Colombia, and China to North America. A multi-instrumentalist sonic adventurer, Nathaniel is both a solo artist and a founding member of the Dead Rat Orchestra, Britain’s finest avant-folk ensemble. He has performed alongside artists as diverse as Squarepusher, Martin Carthy, Godspeed You Black Emperor, Pere Ubu, Silver Apples and Goodiepal.
