Two year programming residency in the Islington Mill event space
Friday 20th March 2015
Taking place in spring at Islington Mill, Fat Out is incredible excited that Richard Skelton will be exploring the theme of LANDSCAPES. HE will reflect on sound born out of, or inspired by, the land and will perform a suite of new compositions for the series.
Richard Skelton is a British musician. His music, which uses a number of instruments – principally guitar and violin, has been compared with that of Arvo Pärt among others. His recordings explicitly reference places of emotional resonance, specifically the West Pennine Moors, and the area around the sparsely populated parish of Anglezarke. Over the past decade Skelton has amassed a significant body of work that distills the essence of natural landscapes, from the moors of Lancashire to the fells of Cumbria, the karst terrain of the Burren to the flood-lands of East Anglia.
A key aim to the series as a whole is to support the practice of emerging artists. To that end, support slots at each event of Saisonscape will provide a platform for emerging artists and new work. Art Assembly will host a ‘Call Out’ to invite artists to submit proposals to perform at each of additions. Two artists will be selected by a panel to appear at each event.
'Call Out' for submissions is scheduled for the 11th of December. For more information please visit http://www.artassembly.org.uk/saisonscape
Performing live at Islington Mill this will be a rare chance to see Richard Skelton perform in this intimate setting.
