Project by sound artist Duncan Chapman completed in collaboration with local communities
On Thursday, July 19, the London Mozart Players and conductor Hilary Davan Wetton gave the world premiere of the South Holland Symphony, a work by Duncan Chapman composed in collaboration with local communities from the Lincolnshire district of South Holland. The 20-minute work was the result of a number of workshops led by Chapman drawing on the remote landscapes of the area. Residents worked alongside LMP musicians to gather a collection of sounds, memories and vistas from which Chapman created the work.
Featuring live film projections and images, the performance took place in the South Holland Centre, Spalding, and formed part of the LMP's ongoing residency in South Holland.
