Where Light meets Dark & Alchemy
Time & Location
About the Event
NEW Sinfonia present 'Where Light meets Dark' a stunning production that combines vast sounds and soaring visuals that reverberate around the ancient stones of St Giles’ Church in Wrexham. This new collaborative work for chamber orchestra and projected visuals has been co-created by Jon Guy and Ant Dickinson and will be live streamed for everyone to experience.
Alongside this new work NEW Sinfonia will join forces with Golden Fable to perform their latest album 'Alchemy', described by Folk Radio UK as being a primal timeless existence, classically beautiful but with a contemporary production.
Ant Dickinson is digital artist, musician and creative technologist whose work integrates ideas of improvisation and indeterminism with a natural, organic visual aesthetic. His music often utilises unconventionally applied instrumentation combined with digital elements and has been performed as far and wide as Adelaide, Australia and Blackpool, UK.
Jon Guy is composer and musician with strong attachment to North Wales where he grew up and continues to produce and perform music. His music is rooted in classical traditions but influenced by many genres and collaborations he has undertaken with artists from a range of genres.
Golden Fable are Rebecca Joy, Tim Joy and Jon Guy. Rebecca’s soaring, haunting vocal takes the centre stage, whilst multi-instrumentalists Tim and Jon create the layered musical textures beneath. The result is a soaring ethereal sound described by The Line of Best Fit as “nothing short of inspirational”. Based in north Wales, Golden Fable are unashamedly linked to the natural world, inspired by the beautiful and varied landscapes that surround them.
