Requiem for 114 Radios – Ian Forsyth and Jane Pollard
Co- commissioned with Colston Hall and opening within the Colston Hall cellars, the spine-tingling Requiem for 114 Radios went on to tour and recently formed part of ‘Daydreaming with Stanley Kubrick’ – an exhibition of art inspired by the master film maker.
Artists and film-makers Iain Forsyth & Jane Pollard were interviewed on Radio 2’s Front Row about the exhibition and the inspiration for Requiem. It was originally commissioned and exhibited as part of the Bristol New Music Festival 2016 in the eerily quiet cellars of Colston Hall.
High profile guest vocalists were invited to contribute their voice to the disembodied choir, and singers included:
Matt Berninger (The National)
Jehnny Beth (Savages)
Casper Clausen (Efterklang/Liima)
Jimi Goodwin (Doves)
Rachel Goswell (Slowdive, Minor Victories)
Blaine Harrison (Mystery Jets)
Joe McAlinden (Linden, ex. Superstar/BMX Bandits)
Aimee Nash (The Black Ryder)
Conrad Standish (The Devastations)
Jonnine Standish (HTRK)
Elena Tonra (Daughter)
Rachel Zeffira (Cat’s Eyes)
