Sound Scape: By Lorna Green and Julia Harding in collaboration with KEMS Contemporary

Join us for the live performance of Sound Scape as artist Lorna Green, in collaboration with composer Julia Harding, with musicians from KEMS Contemporary, explore the relationship between sculpture and live music.

As the musicians move around the installation, they perform music which has been inspired by natural materials and objects, all linked by a grid system.
