Conceived by visual performance artist Michael Mayhew, Mechanical Air employs flute, voice, dance, text 8-channel sound, 16mm film and slide and digital projection. Following performances in London and Manchester, Michael Mayhew and Gavin Osborn are offering a series of workshops to enable you to explore the possibilities of hyper-graphics through collaboration and multi-disciplinary practice. This is a perfect opportunity for musicians, artists, writers, performers, choreographers and dancers to discover their own unique voice in this notation of ideas.
Based on Mechanical Air by Michael Mayhew. Mechanical Air is a Hyper-Graphic Score, a ground-breaking system for the notation and composition of Music Art Performance – MAP.
This system allows for multi-disciplines to combine and collaborate: music, sound, visual arts, text, dance and more can all come together to explore a wide range of ideas and approaches.
