EXAUDI visits the Aldeburgh Festival for a late night concert in their Faster than Sound series.

The original score of Brumel’s 12-part “Missa Ecce et Terrae Motus” or “Earthquake Mass” has rotted away, so Aldeburgh has asked multi-disciplinary artist Russell Haswell to respond to, and complete the original – with live performances of the surviving portions by EXAUDI.

Brumel Missa Ecce et Terrae Motus

Britten Studio, Snape Maltings – 10pm.

Tickets (£10) from the Aldeburgh Festival website here.

As part of the Spitalfields Festival, EXAUDI collaborates with film-maker Sam Belinfante to present MURAL: a multimedia investigation of the places we occupy in the world. There are two live performances on 8th June: 3pm & 5pm, and the installation (with a recording) will be open from 5th-21st June to visit for no cost.

James Weeks MURAL

On entering MURAL the audience is confronted with a fragmented video wall by Sam Belinfante portraying ideas of boundary, interiority and exteriority, while two separated quartets of singers will perform in parallel, surrounding the audience in sound and image. The music articulates a range of quotations ranging from essays of John Cage and poetry of Fernando Pessoa to critiques of the art of Vermeer.

Limewharf, Vyner Street, London, E2 9DJ – 3pm & 5pm.

Tickets (£15 unreserved) available from the Spitalfields Festival website.
