Threshold commission new audio work by award-winning composer
Threshold are excited to announce that we have commissioned a new multichannel audio work from Jo Thomas, Prix Ars Electronica Golden Nica Winner Music and Sound.
Agna Rita will premiere at Lincoln’s Collection Gallery in October at this year’s Frequency Festival of Digital Culture.
Agna Rita is a bold, colourful expression of sound through frequency, rhythm and text from the Magna Carta, exploring a union of medieval modalities and digital contemporary artefacts. This piece, made specifically for the multi-channel Soundwall, works with sculptural space, rhythmic matter and large expansive harmonic plains of sound, which are composed to be presented in the acoustic space of The Collection gallery.
Jo Thomas and Threshold gratefully acknowledge support from PRS for Music Foundation, Arts Council England and the Britten-Pears Foundation.
