Come and record a song which reminds you of home! The song could then form part of an artwork to be exhibited in St John the Baptist church in central Newcastle (Grainger St NE1 5JG)
Recording sessions are being held at St John the Baptist, Grainger Street, between 1pm and 6pm on Friday 15th and Saturday 16th September 2017. At this session you will be invited to sing a song of your choosing, which we will record. Travel expenses will be paid, and tea, coffee and refreshments will be available.
Katia’s project for the Platforma Festival builds on her long held interest in exploring the points of crossing and connection between different cultures. Katia is investigating the experience of the migrant community of Newcastle through their song and music.
She will bring together songs from the church’s’ choir with songs from other cultures sung by people who have migrated to Newcastle. She plans to record these songs and use them as part of a sound installation which will be played in the church during the exhibition.
This Artist Residency is organised in collaboration with the Platforma Festival and is based at St John the Baptist church, Grainger St, Newcastle upon Tyne, NE1 5JG . The art work created by Katia on her residency will be exhibited at St John the Baptist church from 21 October 2017.
