Space in this Place: Goldsmiths on Saturday 6th July 2019

For Daylight Music on 6th July, staff and students from the music department at Goldsmiths will celebrate the 50th anniversary of the moon landing through a varied programme of experimental music-making.

From symphonies to soundscape, from Errollyn Wallen to James Blake, music studies at Goldsmiths are distinctive and inclusive. Goldsmiths encourages an atmosphere of open-minded debate and a commitment to all types of music from classical to jazz and pop.

Burdocks (1970), Christian Wolf - Outline Ensemble
'I had an image in my mind […] of […] a varied community of musicians (classical, folk, experimental, jazz, et cetera), professional and amateur and non-musicians, joined in a populist-anarchist spirit'
– Christian Wolff

Starmaker (2009), Iris Garrelfs
'Star Maker’ is a mini opera for voice and celestial radio emissions developed by Iris Garrelfs for the Science Museum and Sound and Music to mark the 40th anniversary of the Apollo 11 moon landing. It is loosely inspired by the science fiction novel of the same title by Olaf Stapledon which describes a history of life in the universe.

Relativity (1974), Lily Greenham
‘Lingual music’ is the term that Lily Greenham coined for her compositions layer use tape loops of text to create complex and dense musical structures. Her most well-known composition in this style is ‘Relativity’, which was made in 1974 in collaboration with the Radiophonic Workshop at the BBC.

Giant Leap (2019), Daniel James Ross - Goldsmiths Improvising Ensemble
Giant Leap is a piece written especially for Daylight Music. The work celebrates the 50th anniversary of the moon landing and features improvising musicians and audio recordings from onboard Apollo 11 itself.

The Goldsmiths Improvising Ensemble has also been specially created for this event and features staff and student performers.
