Full of Noises is excited to welcome violinist Alison Blunt and friends back to Cumbria with their new project Rose is a Rose is a Rose is a Rose.
‘Rose…’ draws on the famous recipes and writings of Alice B. Toklas (namely the Alice B. Toklas Cookbook), literary material of writer Gertrude Stein and extracts from ‘Solo for Voice’ by highly acclaimed Austrian composer Elisabeth Harnik, devised and performed by the ensemble. Amplified sounds produced by the live cooking are an integral part of the performance.
Alison Blunt (UK), Elisabeth Harnik (AT), Gina Mattiello (AT/IT) and Heidi Richter (AT) first created and performed ‘Rose…’, a live cooking, music and text work to celebrate International Women’s Day 2012 in the historic space of Kulturpension Prenning in Styria.
‘Rose…’ was extremely well-received by an audience largely new to contemporary art music and the four felt mutually inspired by the experience of creating and performing together. A 2nd performance took place at Echoraum, Vienna in April this year and the ensemble are delighted to have the opportunity to share ‘Rose…’ with English audiences in early July.
