AboutMulti-media artists M-O-T-H will explore the architecture of the De La Warr Pavilion through live, High-Definition projected visuals and music as part of the south east Festival of Architecture 2009.
âPlinth' will lead visitors with wireless headsets, around the exterior and interior of the Pavilion, with projected animations inspired by the building's modernist architecture, and sounds captured in situ using contact microphones and samplers by musician VC Kristi.
The performance explores a myth related to the original designs for the building, based around a sculpture of the Greek goddess Persephone that was originally commissioned for the beach terrace but never installed.
A workshop will take place on the same day, in which local young people will learn the secrets of M-O-T-H's unique production and performance technique and have the opportunity to be creatively involved in producing the series of animated stories that will be projected later during âPlinth'.
This event is produced by UP Projects in collaboration with the De La Warr Pavilion, as part of the Pavilion's Random Fridays programme. It is supported by Grants for the Arts funding from Arts Council England, South East. The performance was originally conceived and developed for Future of Sound in collaboration with Cybersonica.
