Royal Exchange Studio

What’s the sound of your city? NORTHERN is an improvised concert for cello, electronics and visuals exploring our everyday sonic identity through improvisation and interaction.

Over the past year, cellist Maja Bugge has undertaken residencies in Lancaster, Barrow and Manchester, exploring the sonic and visual identity of these places through field recordings, video recording and composition.

In this performance, she will debut her take on Manchester in a one-off audio and visual interpretation that reflects how we see, hear and relate to our surroundings.

Expect a sonic mix of spacious and percussive cello lines, ambient electronics, found sounds and striking images, all fused into an immersive experience for the eyes and ears.

A very moving consideration of place and our relationship to it.” – Jocelyn Cunningham, Artistic Director, Lancaster Arts
