PLYMOUTH HOE FORESHORE
Immersive Orchestra is a collaborative performance between wild swimmers and amateur musicians. Devised by artist Shannon Watson, and produced with Imperfect Orchestra, the performance is split into two main parts.
Part One – Wild Swimming
Immersive Orchestra will see dozens of participants enter Plymouth Sound to swim at their leisure whilst being soundtracked by the Imperfect Orchestra’s participatory ensemble of guitars. The wild swimmers will ‘conduct’ the performance of the Guitar Orchestra as their strokes in the water informs the pace of the music, and the number of swimmers effects playing dynamics. Anyone who feels that they are a capable swimmer is invited to take part. Even those who do not feel confident swimming in open water are invited to join in by splashing and paddling on the shoreline.
…and there’s more. Go here for the details.
