WHAT IS SHE BRINGING TO FREQUENCY 15?

Agna Rita combines medieval music, text from Magna Carta and contemporary
digital artifacts. Commissioned for the soundwall, the 22 channel piece is composed for this acoustic space in the Lincoln Collection gallery. The music is liberated in the space, allowing it to fill the gallery for a immersive experience.

The walls will speak sound.

Jo Thomas will be at the Collection Sound Wall with Agna Rita throughout the festival.

Jo Thomas gratefully acknowledges support from PRS for Music Foundation, Arts Council England and the Britten-Pears Foundation.
