‘100 Human Voices’ is about bringing together 100 young people from different parts of the county on the theme of happiness. The ultimate objective is to create a soundscape concert where we curate human voices into a seamless music piece. The voices could be reading a poem, singing, reciting or even just creating sound through body percussion(clapping) and/or collected sounds. We could run a series of singing/ sound workshops to enthuse participants and encourage participation. Following the interactive sessions we will invite participants to submit recordings and then there will be a big “happiness” concert where we bring people together to listen to the performance event. This is being organised as part of the Kirklees Biennale. Manasamitra will be working with Greenhill First School and Boothroyd Primary Academy.
This project is supported by Arts Council England through the Kirklees Biennale and the Sir George Martin Trust
