Dynamic Dunescapes - Restoration Remix workshop
About the event
Take part in a short sound and performance workshop with singer Jo Wade. Come along and give it a go, sing and play percussion. All welcome. No experience necessary.
Take part in and perform on the dunes later in the day (2–3 pm) alongside musicians, artists and drummers.
Restoration Remix is a sound performance taking place at the dunes in Haverigg, performed by Neil and Jo Wade musician and singer, Dave Baker acoustic drummer, Irene Rogan environmental artist and singer songwriter Hannah Rose Kessler. Local residents and visitors are offered an opportunity to participate and contribute to the work.
The sound performance and singing is inspired by William Blakes poem Auguries of Innocence, a poem on mankind and nature, the poet proffers the argument that the natural world can be regenerated in time and that nature itself can be an augury to the lost vision of innocence. The phrasing of the title is the strongest example of this theme, for here, the word “innocence” signifies man in the unfallen state.
To see a World in a Grain of Sand
And a Heaven in a Wild Flower
Hold Infinity in the palm of your hand
And Eternity in an hour
