The town house at 25 Brook Street was the home of George Frederick Handel; the house next door was once the London residence of Jimi Hendrix. In November 2014, I was invited by composer in residence Cevanne Horrocks-Hopayian to perform in Handel’s former home which is now a museum.
I played live with acoustic instruments and my automata, responding to the history of these buildings and their former occupants. This event is part of Cevanne’s Eyemusic season of the theme of ‘seeing sound’.
Crewdson and Cevanne also demonstrated a new piece of wearable music technology on the night, created with costumier Fumbalinas.
