Cecila Sings

The concert was accompanied by video and image projections on the wall and main screen. Thanks to Jon Crews for creating the videos and operating the equipment (with the help of Chloe Lam).

12.During Birdcries, four images by Caitlin Rowly were shown (with permission). Simply titled 'Four black and white pieces', these evocative pen and ink images were first created for volume 2 of my project 'Closet Music: imagined soundworlds', whereby composers and artists produced works intended to be seen and read but not performed aloud.
