Dark Skies Project with Manasamitra and Duncan Chapman

4th September 2018 - 26th October 2018

The Dark Skies Project sees composer Duncan Chapman explore the patterns of the constellations as they are depicted in astronomy with children and young people. They are learning shapes and movement within the drawings; working with imagined sounds and creating a soundscape.

Manasamitra are composing two new choral pieces with the children and young people. The process will explore the mathematics behind the constellation patterns and musical notes. They are also hiring a mobile planetarium and once the music work is complete, the children and young people will perform the piece in the space or contribute to an installation in the space.

The school involved in this project is Pentland Infant School.

Dark Skies will be performed at Dewsbury Museum on 10th November – see more here
