THE FRIENDS OF ELY SINFONIA PRESENTS TOUCHABLE DREAMS IN THE KEY OF LOVE
Local celebrity duo intertwine violin, electric violin, loops, guitar and voice in a profound homage to love. Presented by the Friends of Ely Sinfonia, Ely Methodist Church, Friday 10th September 2010, 7.30pm
Celebrated local musician, Steve Bingham, is teaming up with wordsmith Jeremy Harmer on Friday 10th September for an evening dedicated to love. Presented by the Friends of Ely Sinfonia and taking place at Ely Methodist Church, the event combines classical and electric violin, loops, guitar and voice, demonstrating the passion, tenderness and agony of deep feeling, as they are brought out by both music and the spoken word.
Touchable Dreams explores the symbiosis between words and music and the ways in which they echo and complement each other. Sometimes words follow the music; at other times music follows the words; and sometimes the words and the music are intertwined in an almost physical interdependency.
“This is an event unlike any you'll have experienced before,” says Roz Chalmers, who chairs Ely Sinfonia. “When I first heard Jeremy and Steve with their unique combination of modern and classical music and words, I was completely bowled over.”
Jeremy Harmer says: “We try to show how music and words, the very bases of human emotion, can co-exist and enhance each other in expressing one of the greatest emotions of the human experience – love. We describe romantic love, transient love, ridiculous love, bitter love, lost love and sublime love.”
