The Lost City of Dunwich Artist Information
Sunday 14th February 2016, 20.00 start, £6, Cafe Kino Bristol
Live music performances and conversation from Laura Cannell, Rhodri Davies, Matt Davies and Milo Newman.
Onomato are delighted to bring together four artists to sonically explore the mystery and intrigue that surrounds the lost city of Dunwich on the coastal region of Suffolk, East Anglia. For Matt Davies and Milo Newman’s first live performance of their on-going work ‘By the mark, the deep’ they will construct an 8-channel live sound installation testing their recordings from deep in the waters of Dunwich’s ruins to create a new sonic architecture. With her evocative over-bowed fiddle and recorder, Laura Cannell, along with un-traditional harpist Rhodri Davies, will contribute improvised responses followed by solo performances.

Featuring live performances by artists working with sound and music whose work reflects notions of decay.

This edition of Saisonscape is curated and produced by Art Assembly in association with ONOMATO and Arnolfini.
