Optophono is thrilled to announce the launch of 'Constructing a River' by Matilde Meireles and Chrysoula Draraki. The project, which is published as a book, a set of postcards, and audio recordings, explores the construction of the River Lagan in Belfast. For the launch event the artists have invited Paul Stapleton to improvise to Matilde Meireles' 'Constructing a River' composition with his custom-made metallic Tromba Marina. The location of the event, the highly resonant Lagan Weir, offers a unique experience.
Please note: the Lagan Weir is normally closed to the public, and tickets are very limited (only 30 seats). We recommend booking early to avoid disappointment. Ticket information in event page.
