26 September 2015, 2-5pm
Join singer-songwriter Bumi Thomas and Professor Hugh Montgomery, Director of the Institute for Human Health and Performance at University College London, for a live music experiment and discussion exploring the connection between the emotional, the medical and the musical.
Vivid Projects, in partnership with Body of Songs, is inviting curious audience members to drop in on Saturday 26 September, between 2-5pm, to listen and observe as musicians interpret organs of the body through live, improvised music. The audience will be able to request an organ to be explored, learn more about its medical, emotional and metaphorical significance, and then ‘hear’ them as interpreted by local musicians.
Body of Songs is an ongoing project in which challenges music artists to write music inspired by organs of the body. Vivid Projects is delighted to be working in partnership with Body of Songs to bring a one-off lab to Birmingham as part of 9 Evenings: Redux, a season of new collaborative commissions in which artists will critique, re-work and react to the seminal 1966 series 9 Evenings: Theatre & Engineering.

The workshop will take place at Vivid Projects on Saturday 26 September 2015, 2-5pm and we are looking for amazing musicians who thrive on a challenge to take part! If you are interested in participating please e-mail Beth Clayton at firstname.lastname@example.org.
