The Coming Pattern – with Julyen Hamilton
Julyen Hamilton – dance, voice, music
George Kokkinaris – music, voice
Sound music, the voice, words and dancing….also obvious that they go together! But how?
Over the past years both of these performers and makers have been tuning, refining and engaging compositionally and in numerous performances to work these elements. Excerpts of story, fragments of melody, movements and rearrangements of the body, aligned and placed together to make more than simple juxtaposition. To make a layering which touches and plays to different levels of our attention, understanding and emotions.
This multiple layering is The Coming Pattern.
And not simple composting of layers but a composition in which each layer plays and listens to the other layers, saying what is needed, staying silent when appropriate.
