CREATED especially for Hyde900 King Alfred Weekend 2019, ‘R E S O N A T E’ honours the life of Alfred the Great; embraces Hyde’s unique sense of place, past and present; and will immerse your senses in the possibilities of creative expression. Spanning a millennium from Hyde Abbey’s ancient music and art forms to contemporary, abstract sounds of modern greats, Emma Alexandra and Sophie Cunningham Dawe mine the archive and sample modern styles to guide you through an exploration in ‘the colour of music’.

The stage is set for a virtuoso dialogue in tempo and tone, spaces and silences, each responding to each other’s respective aural and visual language and together, speaking to the music of others. Reflecting Emma’s musical works and interpretations, Sophie’s projected backdrops offer a re-imagined Winchester as settings for her gestural mark-making to float like Emma’s notes, resonating within the rich acoustic of St Bartholomew’s. We will explore palindrome and share our reflections on making sound more visual and the visual more lyrical. Woven through the programme are our guest performances. Of note is composer Julien Chilcott-Monk’s plainchant trilogy prepared specifically for this event and featuring soloists from his choirs.
