TRINIDAD RHAPSODY, Part 1
‘Fragments of Glory’
Artist-Poet Sarah Beckett
Composer Adam Walters
Saturday, September 23rd 2017
TRINIADAD RHAPSODY ( Part I) is the first stage in a collaboration between Beckett and Walters, combining poetry, painting and music. Walters has composed music to the first part of Beckett’s epic poem ‘Cloud Country’ – a love poem for Trinidad . Beckett then painted to his music.
A musical rhapsody is one continuous piece of music shaped by different moods tempo and tonalities. In painting, mood corresponds to a predominant hue, tempo = brushwork : tonalities = saturation and structure (the arabesque /geometry/ spacial relationships)
The event will include the concert, poetry reading and a film of Beckett’s work.
The Exhibition of the paintings Fragments of Glory will open at Horizons Art Gallery on Tuesday 10th October 2017.
