Kitten Postcard Project
3 - 26 February 2012
Presenting the collaborative work of three former Milton Keynes Music Service scholarship students - artist Lucinda Chua, composer Nicholas Worrall and violinist Noura Sanatian.
Encompassing performance, video, musical transcripts, musical composition and photography, Kitten Postcard Project derives its name from a 1990s comedy sketch in which British stand-up comedian Stewart Lee analyses a postcard of a cat and a dog playing the piano, debating the merits and skill of free jazz and improvised music.
The exhibition maps Chua, Worrall and Sanatian’s creative process, revealing how they pieced together a duet for violin and piano from an improvised musical start. Lucinda Chua, known for her constructed photography, exhibits internationally but also performs records under the moniker of Felix. Nicholas Worrall, a music composition graduate from Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance, has composed music for film and exhibition and has been involved in a number of collaborative projects for contemporary dance, both as a writer, choreographer and performer. Violinist Noura Sanatian, also from Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance, has developed a specialist interest in improvised music and performed at various venues, including the Southbank Centre, the Royal Albert Hall and the Birmingham Symphony Hall.
You can hear Lucinda Chua performing as Felix during MK Gallery’s Scratch Night on Thursday 9 February.
