Floodtide – Sat 19th July

Saturday 19th July 2014

Workshop: 10:30 – 12:00, Cookes Studios, Abbey Road, Barrow-in-Furness, LA14 5QR

Performance: 14:00 onwards, The Dock Museum, North Road, Barrow-in-Furness, Cumbria LA14 2PW


Floodtide by John Eacott makes music from the movement of tidal water. A submerged sensor at Barrow Dock Museum will gather information from tidal flow that is converted into musical notation and read from screens or mobile phones by musicians. We are looking for acoustic musicians or vocalists with basic music reading skills to take part in a performance of Floodtide in Barrow. Please bring yourself, your instrument, and (if you have one) an internet able device, such as a smartphone, iPad, or laptop. You will take part in a 90 minute workshop at Cookes Studios with John, reading music that is being generated from the tide, before walking across town for a performance live at The Dock Museum.

If you are unsure, John has provided information for performers here.
