Belfast based composer Rory Friers looks at coping and absence with scored work, All Together; All Alone. This large scale multimedia installation and audio piece was commissioned by the NI Science Festival and draws on Rorys work as a film composer as well as his recent, highly acclaimed AV project, Jettison, with his band And So I Watch You From Afar. All Together; All Alone was composed for string ensemble and guitar. Its visual element was created using handheld footage of a deserted Belfast collected during the first days of the 2020 lockdown and a scrap book of intimate field recordings from the subsequent two years. Rory scored the musical accompaniment that wove through these elements and reflected the thoughts its stirred.
Created especially with Dolby Atmos for the incredible surround audio system in the AMAZE space in W5 you are placed in complete emersion, enveloped by the moving sounds and sites of a very unique time in our recent history. This aching, searching and stark work is made more poignant by the perspective its experienced from today.
All Together; All Alone opens on Friday 18 February and runs until Sunday 27 February.
This event is produced in partnership with NI Science Festival – Behind the Sound and W5.
