Under the Blossom that Hangs on the Bough

June 3 2017 4:30pm - 7:30pm

Pram has collaborated with Haven Women’s Group, Woodgate Valley Country Park History Group, Chad Vale School & Martineau Gardens Volunteers with support from mac Birmingham and capsule.

Let Pram take you on a journey through the city, a sound trail through the four wards of Birmingham’s Edgbaston district. Hear the world from the perspective of a bee as it flutters and forages. The snuffles of a tiny baby become the snores of a lion, the gurgle of a stream a mighty cataract.

Composers and sonic artists Pram have been exploring south Birmingham with the help of local community groups to uncover the sounds of the locality. The results are both familiar and surprising.

Come along and follow the woodland trail, bring a picnic (or indulge in our delicious food stalls) and settle down for a performance inspired by the sound of the city as you’ve never heard it before!
