Heatwork is an Arts Council UK funded project bringing together experimental music and video composers alongside local and international musicians. The project aims to widen participation in experimental music and audio-visual artforms, engage with the local community, musicians and industrial partners and foster collaboration, and celebrate and disseminate the cultural heritage of the potteries industry.
The first performance of Heatwork, with full brass band and Clarinet soloist, took place on 15th November 2019 at Middleport Pottery, Stoke-on-Trent. Middleport is a working industrial site housing many local ceramic craft artists and businesses. A second performance was undertaken at Sabre Fest Zurich University of the Arts (ZHdK) in February 2020 with clarinet and audio-visual electronics. It is an ongoing collaborative project.
Live visuals were performed by Dave Payling using his own footage and supported by additional films from Staffordshire Film Archive and BCB Festival
More information including videos are available on the C3 Centre blog.
