Join us at Spike Island for the preview evening of 'Where There Is No More Music To Write', including a special performance by exhibiting artist Alvin Curran and local musicians.


On the opening evening of When There Is No More Music to Write – a two-person exhibition by Eric Baudelaire and Alvin Curran – Spike Island hosts BEAMS, a special live performance by avant-garde composer Curran with a group of local artists and musicians.

The performance is based on a structured improvisation of singing, shouting and activating a set of “found” musical instruments, all gathered according to a broad definition of what an instrument can be. It follows a series of closed workshops between Curran and the participants earlier in the week.
