Saturday 3rd June
for-Wards, MAC Birmingham & Pram present
*Under the Blossom that Hangs on the Bough*
Let Pram take you on a journey through the city, a sound trail through the four wards of Birmingham's Edgbaston district.
Hear the world from the perspective of a bee as it flutters and forages. The snuffles of a tiny baby become the snores of a lion, the gurgle of a stream a mighty cataract.
Composers and sonic artists Pram have been exploring south Birmingham with the help of local community groups to uncover the sounds of the locality. The results are both familiar and surprising.
Come along and follow the woodland trail, bring a picnic and settle down for a performance inspired by the sound of the city as you've never heard it before.
Set in the magical surroundings of Martineau Gardens, Under the Blossom that Hangs on the Bough is an installation and performance by Pram, celebrating the sounds of Edgbaston.
Under the Blossom that Hangs on the Bough will take place at Martineau Gardens on Saturday 3rd June from 4.30pm concluding with a performance by Pram inspired by sound recordings made in the wards of Quinton, Harborne, Edgbaston and Bartley Green.
Pram were selected for for-Wards by Capsule
