SIRF 13 Highlights - Oxford Contemporary Music - Audible Forces
Audible Forces is a sight to be seen and heard! Trinity Green hosted a collection of wind powered musical installations and these intriguing kinetic, sonic creations produced other-worldly sounds as nature's unseen force breathed life into them.
This captivating collection is inspired by sound artist Max Eastley's explorations into Aeolian (wind driven) instruments, from their mythology and curious history, to contemporary explorations of them.
Six of the finest sound artists around today (Mark Anderson, Jony Easterby, Kathy Hinde, Dan Fox, Nathaniel Robin Mann and Mike Blow) have joined Max and each created their own instruments that harness the wind.
Their instruments form a unified experience made up of an ever changing sound world that captures the imagination.

Roll up, roll up, roll up. The most magnifical, tremendible and fantasticulous travelling circus arrives on Stockton High Street, recalling Stockton's tradition of welcoming a circus to the town each Winter.
The caravan of curiosities has arrived to entertain, amuse and beguile you. Packed with Vaudeville, circus, puppets, dance, music and magic, a cast of professional charlatans will regale you with tales of wit, virtue and courage, all loosely based upon Aesop's fables and rendered with a bizarre theatricality all of their own.
