tuningworlds was a project first devised by Richard Povall for Aune Head Arts, in collaboration with the Arts at Dartington and inexhaustible composer Hugh Nankivell.
The project had a simple idea: to work with a common fundamental pitch and to encourage improvisation, creating a ‘tuned world’ with a wide variety of styles and musical flavours. The project also has at its root a simple question: “what tunes your world?”.
As a project, it didn’t take off to the extent we hoped, although a number of workshops and event did take place. Funding for the larger project was not forthcoming in these difficult times (despite some seed funding from David Francis at Dartington).
You can listen to some music and words from the project.
There may even be some pictures coming soon.
