Kaleidoscope Music Memes

Imagine being able to create your own musical pieces from ‘sound lego’ using your smart phone before sharing your ideas with professional musicians ahead of a planned live performance.

Luke Daniels the award winning and critically acclaimed folk musician and singer hosts a series of folk and world music concerts at Citadel St Helens that will make use of mobile technology to jointly create new music with audiences in the run up to each performance. Showcasing three world-class performers from Syria, China, South Africa via fortnightly duo concerts that culminate in a final full quartet performance.

Audiences from Citadel St Helens along with those from Met Bury, Atkinson Southport and Liverpool Philharmonic Hall will be able to create and share their own musical arrangements from a pool of prerecorded interlocking audio clips of each artist involved by downloading the ‘music memes’ mobile app to contribute towards the development of their final work.

The idea that the evolution of music which takes place over generations can be reproduced and sped up via modern mobile technology and social media will be central to this series of outstanding concerts.

The three-month project starts at the end of March with sixteen public performances featuring the most popular of their ‘memetically’ created works throughout May June via a specially formed consortium of four northwest venues.

Luke Daniels is a multi- instrumentalist specialising in button accordion and melodeon Luke has enjoyed a long career collaborating with a range of artists and organisations as a means of promoting folk music. Riverdance, London Jazz Festival, London Philharmonic Orchestra, Celtic Connections and English National Opera.

Abel Selaocoe is a South African cellist who collaborates with beatboxers and world musicians whilst giving solo classical recitals and concerto performances as a soloist with numerous orchestras including Kwa-Zulu Philharmonic, Johnannesburg Phil and Randburg Symphony. He has performed at the Aldeburgh Festival and at the BBC Proms.
