Sonic Acts co-commission TIME TIME TIME in Oslo and London
Jennifer Walshe and Timothy Morton’s operatic work TIME TIME TIME, which was co-commissioned by Sonic Acts, will be presented on 13 September 2019 at Ultima Oslo Contemporary Music Festival and 14 December 2019 at London Contemporary Music Festival in collaboration with Serpentine Galleries. For this commission, Morton and Walshe join forces with a notable ensemble of musicians and sound artists to explore the multiplicity of temporalities at the heart of being human. Everyone in the room is important – from the fast-paced digital time of M. C. Schmidt and Walshe, the deep geological rhythms of Lee Patterson, the liminal eternal drones of Aine O’Dwyer, to the shifting tectonic plates of Streifenjunko and Vilde&Inga. Following its world premiere at Muziekgebouw aan ’t IJ as part of Sonic Acts Festival 2019, the work has since been presented at Borealis – en festival for eksperimentell musikk (Bergen) and MaerzMusik (Berlin). More information about the performances can be found on the Ultima Oslo Contemporary Music Festival website and London Contemporary Music Festival / Serpentine Galleries.
