HALLÉ ST PETER'S
40 BLOSSOM STREET, ANCOATS

TIME: 7PM - 9PM
For their new live artwork Local Recall, Open Music Archive explored the ghostly echoes that persist through repetition in the playback of music and draw a line between the model industrial city of the late 19th Century and post-industrial Manchester of the early 1990s.
Open Music Archive ran workshops with young people from 42nd Street and Unity Radio 92.8FM, to remix, cut-up, loop and re-assemble late 19th Century music gleaned from player piano rolls. The results were played back and performed for a 21st Century audience.
DJ sets featuring music by Ra-man, MJ Meano, Deadpool and more...
Piano recitals by Serge Tebu and Calum Macleod & Liam Waddle
plus a new audiovisual work by Eileen Simpson and Ben White (Open Music Archive) featuring a live sound track written and performed by Graham Massey (808 State).
