CHINESE WHISPERS

A collaborative project based on the game of the same name.

 

Anna Braithwaite invited Myah Chun Grierson to create a graphic score inspired by a text/artwork/object of her choosing.

 

She responded to Amanda Gefter’s article written for BBC Earth, ‘The Strange Fate of a Person Falling into a Black Hole’. Myah presented the MCC with her graphic score from which they improvised a musical reaction without knowing the source material.

 

The ‘whisper’ was passed on again during the performances at Free Range 02/02/17, Profound Sound on 03/02/17 and Turner Contemporary at 'Oscillate', on 03/06/17 to artist, Helen Lindon, who reacted 'live' to the improvisation she heard without knowing the subject.

Concept - Anna Braithwaite, Graphic score by Myah Chun Grierson, music created and performed by members of the Montrose Composers’ Club, 'action artist' Helen Lindon.
