Details

Tarek Atoui has created an organ for this special performance in Wakefield Cathedral. The organ will be performed alongside other instruments that have been on display across the galleries during the festival. These will be played in dialogue with Wakefield Cathedral, a building with its own musical fabric and one of the most significant buildings in Wakefield.

For Yorkshire Sculpture International Atoui will continue his exploration of the material properties of sound, its connection to the body of both the performer and the audience, and his interest in the invention of new instruments and instrument-making.

Atoui will be working with people across Leeds and Wakefield to create a series of performances this summer. He will construct new instruments, scattering these across the galleries’ indoor and outdoor spaces. These will be activated regularly, creating a composition and layered soundscape that reaches across the Yorkshire Sculpture International sites. Selected instruments from each venue will travel temporarily offsite and come together in different combinations in locations across Leeds and Wakefield, creating unique performances on each occasion.
