bringing contemporary music and arts to the widest possible audience
Pictures don’t really do full justice to the experience of Colourscape!
The full impact of being inside can only be felt when completely surrounded by Colourscape’s intense colour and light, with many views opening up like a kaleidoscope on every side.
And though these pictures do help to give a small feeling of the power of the experience, remember that they only show one small view. You need to be inside to fully soak up the colours….
Eye Music Trust has presented a very large number of performances and events at sites and venues throughout the UK and abroad over many years.
Colourscape is a unique performance space where the public can interact freely and in close proximity to musicians and dancers. There is no stage or separation from the public, and the most magical performances are where the performers lead the audience on a journey of colour, music and space.
We have presented performances including: new Gamelan works; recorder ensembles; improvising brass quartet and dance; large-scale music-theatre works; many electroacoustic works; string quartets; piano and ensemble; percussion ensembles; saxophone ensembles; massed Ukuleles; massed flute choirs; vocal ensembles; Tibetan Singing Bowls; didgeridoo; harp; guitar and electronics; invented instruments.
We have presented performances in the UK including 18 London boroughs; Liverpool; York; Whitehaven; Accrington; Hull; Scarborough; Norwich; Ipswich, March; Chelmsford; Sevenoaks; Barnstaple; Gloucester; Weston-Super-Mare; Exeter; Rotherham; Sheffield; Barnsley; Wakefield.
Eye Music presented Colourscape at the 1999 Jeunesse Musicale in Vienna, 2006 World Cup Festival in Cologne and the 2011 European Capital of Culture in Turku, Finland.
