"This pioneering Faster Than Sound residency brings together science, visual art and music to explore the connections inspired by the brain and sound. These links will be realised in a new sculptural work by design studio and two new works by Mira Calix and Anna Meredith which all take MRI brain scanners as their inspiration. The artists will work in close collaboration with esteemed neuroscientist Professor Vincent Walsh throughout the residency and he will also provide insights to the audience through pre-concert talks. Brainwaves offers a tantalising insight into the connections between the worlds of creativity and science."

Deloitte Ignite
Mira Calix performs a new soundtrack for Lotte Reiniger's classic animation "The Adventures Of Prince Achmed'

4 & 5th September
Royal Opera House, London

"The award winning Deloitte Ignite returns for its third year. This year the curator for the Royal Opera House’s contemporary arts festival will be internationally renowned pianist, composer and auteur Joanna MacGregor.

For the 2010 festival Joanna has taken her inspiration from forests: forests as a place of quiet, reflective beauty, mystery and discovery, as places of fairytale narrative, as well as metaphorical spaces. She has invited artists to create forests all over the Royal Opera House in different materials: recycled and reclaimed wood, organic materials, old costumes and mannequins, shimmering projections and reflecting pools. There are films, music and dance performances, soundscapes and installations. In amongst the forests are hints of the forthcoming Season, as well as echoes of Covent Garden’s old flower market. Each space is designed so that you can enter at any moment and stay for as long or as little time as you would like with performances recurring throughout the weekend daytime tickets are free, but need to be booked in advance."
