Concert The Speed of Silence

Two concerts: 17:30 & 19:30
Culturele hub TV04
Tournooiveld 4
The Hague
These concerts are supported by a grant from the Cultuurmakers Fund

Ned McGowan (flutist and composer) and Guy Livingston (pianist and podcaster) bring their artistic interests together in an innovative, interactive performance that combines live music with slides, films, small lectures and audience interactions.
The academic and multimedia lecture is a light-hearted fascinating presentation with audience participation in which the aspect of time, and in particular the sense of time perceived by the listener, forms the starting point. […] Composed music and improvisations on the flute and keyboards make it clear that complexity influences the experience of time … musically the performance is an enlightening experience. ” —Ken Vos, review [Leidse Dagblad, February 24, 2020]
Next to performing and making, McGowan and Livingston are both pursuing artistic research PhDs at Leiden University. Ned McGowan is investigating the phenomenon of speed in music, from a performing and compositional perspective. Guy Livingston explores silence and its many aspects, especially in contemporary music and architecture.
