New Note Orchestra, in collaboration with artist and composer Conall Gleeson and the film-maker Angus Cameron, present a montage of archive film and live sound for the premier performance of their new work ‘Solace’. The work explores the condition of solace as understood by orchestra’s members, all of whom are in recovery from drug and substance abuse. The work is motivated by the theme of consolation in times of distress and combines recorded and live sound, voice, text and moving image.
The New Note Orchestra, based in Brighton, has been created to help people stay sober from drug and alcohol addiction and is the first and only recovery orchestra in the world. It brings a punk ethos to the classical arena, not in musical style but in attitude. It believes that with a bit of encouragement anyone can pick up an instrument and write great music.
The archive content is from the collection of Screen Archive South East at the University of Brighton.
