4th – 15th March 2019, Heseltine Gallery is excited to exhibit Translation
The Whale Song Scroll
Nine bands and solo artists from record labels Bella Union, Transgressive, and Lost Map Records, amongst others, passed an imaginary musical baton, each set of artists creating a track that only responded to the track that had gone before. The initial band Landshapes brought the project to conclusion when they also made the tenth and final response.
The Whale Song Scroll used the abstraction of dance and physical movement to translate the sounds into gesture, then gesture into a purely visual medium. Over a year in planning and making, the scroll is an artefact 10m in length, and uses traditional materials such as ink, gesso, and gold leaf to capture the essential dynamism of each track.
I wish to say a massive thank you for the help and support we were given. Everyone looked after us splendidly and without a doubt a good time was had by all. The facilities were excellent and the evening a great success, please take a deal of the credit for that outcome.
Thank you so much for your hospitality in providing such excellent facilities for the AOTOS Access Day. We were very happy with the arrangements. The caretakers and catering staff were so approachable and willing to help.
I just wanted to say a HUGE thank you. Everything went smoothly and we were very appreciative of you accommodating some of the last minute requests. You were on hand for the entire evening and many people commented on how wonderful the setting and food was.
CCC were delighted with the SBA Sport’s Centre for its Business Fair 2018 and received really positive feedback from attendees. Truro School’s team were very efficient and the space was transformed into a professional business fair.
