Metal is delighted to announce, Trackbed – a new composition and sound installation developed by electronic music duo Darkstar, in collaboration with Harthill Youth Centre in Wavertree.
This experimental work will be presented as an interactive sound installation at Edge Hill Station this September, and as a live music performance premiering at Edge Hill in Liverpool on 27 September 2017, before touring to the Barbican Centre in London.
The installation and final composition will be the outcome of several residencies Darkstar have run at Harthill Youth Centre and Edge Hill, with the aim of encouraging young people to talk about the issues they face: from migration and Brexit, to music, family and community. A short film by Cieron Magat is also being commissioned alongside the project as part of the installation and live performance.
The project is part of our young arts programme in conjunction with Different Trains 1947, an exploration of the UK and India's shared history, a story that is also marked by the themes of migration, home and heritage.
The installation will launch with a special event on 5 September featuring a talk from Darkstar along with a Q+A featuring the duo and the staff of Harthill Community Centre. The event is FREE but booking is essential: click here to book your free tickets.
