Megan Broadmeadow: SEEK - PRAY - ADVANCE
WHAT WOULD YOU DO IF YOU WERE A CHOSEN ONE?
WOULD YOU EMBRACE OR HIDE?
IF YOU ACCEPTED YOUR FATE, HOW WOULD YOU TRANSMIT THIS NEWS TO THE WORLD?
The Sci Fi choir is a collaboration between Bristol based musicians, singers and artists and initiated by artist Megan Broadmeadow in collaboration with composer Matthew Faulkner and choir master Nicholas Sutton.
For Experimentica the choir will be creating a series of performative soundscapes which explore the multidimensional world of alien voices. The work has been created through workshops in which the choir has investigated sonic interpretations of the similarities of delusional disorder, religious euphoiria, spiritual transformation and the contemporary phenomena of alien contact.
The sci fi choir is part of wider research project by Broadmeadow in which she is developing an interdisciplinary artwork entitled SEEK- PRAY- ADVANCE. Comprising of installation, video, performance and sound. It will unfold as an episodically during 2018-19 across the UK. The first Episode - EYES ONLY is currently on show at CGP London and features a soundtrack performed by the Sci Fi Choir. This marks the departure point for the work, which will be travelling onto Green Man Festival for episode 2 (august 2018) then will culminate with episode 3 at QUAD, Derby in autumn 2019. The sounds of the sci fi choir will also be celebrated in an ep by Bristol based Paper Folds Records in 2019.
