IN between MUSIC and PHOTOGRAPHY is a complementary event for the THIRTEEN exhibition at Lauderdale House (4 to 27 October 2017), offering a visual and sound experience, weaving together photography and music to tell a tale. The programme reflects the artistic paths that Susanne Mecklenburg (voice) William Hancox (piano) and Gareth Davies (photography and video) have chosen in their collaboration which unite them in their exploration of eclectic musical choices and photographic techniques.
Musically there will be a combination of styles, composers, musical periods, geographical origins, rhythms, stories and lyrics, spanning from Händel toPiazzolla and including music by Britten, Holst and Bridge as well as contemporary Spanish and South American composers. In the accompanying photography and videos, you will find a diverse set of imagery using techniques such as slitscan and panoramas, matching the breadth and depth of the music and including Gareth’s work in the THIRTEEN exhibition.
Susanne Mecklenburg (soprano) regularly performs in solo concerts in the UK, Italy, Germany and Switzerland. Her concerts are known to combine unusual styles, composers, musical periods, geographical origins, rhythms, stories and lyrics and are always motivated by the desire to tell a story. The searching for and discovering of new repertoire is one of the most enjoyable parts of creating such programmes and often leads to discovering rarely performed songs.

Gareth Davies (photography) lives and works in London and specialises in slitscan panoramic photography, enabling the capture of progress, repetition and time within a single integrated still image. Gareth is a member of the International Association of Panoramic Photographers, the Royal Photographic Society and London Independent Photography. Further information on www.tickpan.co.uk.
William Hancox (piano) has performed as a solo pianist, chamber musician and accompanist throughout the UK and abroad. He has played in all major concert halls in London and broadcast for Classic FM and the BBC. His teaching activities have included positions at London’s Guildhall School of Music and Drama and Trinity College of Music, as well as the Britten-Pears School in Aldeburgh.
