Musical composition (percussions), by the Guildhall School of Music and Drama de Londres
Six composition students, directed by Ed Finnis of the Guildhall School of Music and Drama, were chosen to compose short pieces inspired by Paul-André Fortier’s Solo 30x30. The
compositions, based mainly on electronic sound and percussion, were performed in the Great Hall of Bishopsgate Institute at a special indoor extra performance of Solo 30x30.
The Guildhall School of Music and Drama is one of Europe's leading conservatoires, offering musicians, actors, stage managers and theatre technicians an inspiring environment in which to develop
as artists and professionals. The school first opened its doors in 1880.
Photographs by Hugo Gendinning
Hugo Glendinning’s work in connection with Solo 30x30 focused on the environment (architecture, space, crowds etc...). He photographed several performances and then chose to exhibit a
single photograph. This was a deliberate choice by the artist. He feels that in this digital age, the trend is to continuously accumulate information and images. In this case, the
artist’s viewpoint is illustrated by a single photograph.
Hugo Glendinning has been a photographer for twenty years. He works mainly in the field of art and culture, producing portraits and photos of performances. He has worked with some of
the leading dance and theatre companies in the UK.
