It is said that each end is a new beginning. So, a new start will happen with the piano which was destined for disposal. It has been waiting for its moment in the Copper Leg Residency garage throughout the long winter. This hardworking but tired musical instrument will be brought into focus with the help of our new resident, sound artist Simon Whetham from Bristol, England. The focus of his work is to open and to make heard the sound potentials which are existing in the room or in the environment, through a performative presentation or through an installation activity.
Simon has worked extensively in international cooperation with dancers, musicians, visual and video artists. In addition, he has published his musical compositions on various sound media and has previously participated in the Mooste Guest Studio (MoKS) program in Estonia. In general, his lifestyle is a progression from one residency to another and this has been going on for 7 years now.
So, if you are getting tired of life around the football World Cup, it’s time to get some fresh air and come on Saturday 07.07 from 15:00 – 18:00 to the Open Doors Day of the Copper Leg Art Residency, where you can meet with Simon Whetham and his creations.
If the weather allows enough sun and/or wind, then the piano can certainly be heard making sounds. In any case, the artist will finish the day with a sound experience.
