Abigail Reynolds Double Brass
St Keverne Band performs
Troheaul by Gareth Churcher
21 June (Summer Solstice) at noon
Troheaul was composed by Gareth Churcher, leader of St Keverne Band, specifically for Double Brass, a collaboration with Abigail Reynolds.
Double Brass was Kestle Barton’s first commissioned performance/time-based work. It is a thirty minute performance in the meadow, knee-high with wild flowers, butterflies and bees at mid-summer. Two brass bands march in such a way that the music being played will appear to separate, becoming dissonant, and come together to harmonise, over time. Audience and band members listen across the landscape with a heightened awareness of locality and terrain.
St Keverne Band are based only three miles from the gallery. They are graded First Section nationally, and comprise three bands of different ages, with a total membership of over sixty.
