A multi-sensory performance of electronic music from composer Richard Evans (previously of James) comes to Oldham Library as part of Open Spaces Festival.
Sentinel, produced by Cold Star Media, explores the planet’s near-future with songs accompanied by visualisations of real-world climate and refugee date from award-winning artist Valentina D’Efilippo and features vocals from singer Charlotte Dalton.
The multi-sensory journey through the present and future effects of global warming promises to feature lush synths and electro rhythems mixed with live vocals to create a mesmerising soundtrack to data, art, laser lighting and video.
Supported by Arts Council England, Waterside and Manchester Science Festival, the show has been inspired by the themes of climate change and forced migration.
Speaking of the show, Richard Evans commented, “Sentinel is a creative response to climate change and forced migration, which are among the most urgent issues we face today. The show is about all our futures and we hope it will entertain, inform and inspire.”
Evans was a guitarist and songwriter for St Vitus Dancers and later played keyboards with Manchester band James, appearing on the Strip Mine album.
