Musicity

Musicity, together with Culture Mile, present a series of specially commissioned pieces by a very diverse selection of artists and linked to specific locations all around the City.  Sound artist and composer Fari Bradley has created her piece, The Visitor Book, inspired by the Charterhouse Chapel and cloister. From 18th May onwards you will be able to hear it when you’re in front of the building.  Just click on the Musicity website on your phone and choose the Charterhouse track.  You will also be able to see Fari Bradley live at the Barbican’s Life Rewired Hub at 6.00pm on 8th July when she will explain the inspiration for the piece and perform it.

Sound Unbound at the Charterhouse

We are excited to announce that this year we are partnering with the Barbican and Culture Mile to host exclusive events as part of the Sound Unbound Festival.

The Charterhouse is Sound Unbound’s home for early music both in its original form, and reimagined for a modern age. The programme includes acclaimed violist Liam Byrne who will perform Nico Muhly’s ‘Long Phrases for the Wilton Diptych’, you will be able to experience a beautiful interactive version of ‘Pleasure Garden’ by Australian recorder player Genevieve Lacey, and there will be music from the Academy of Ancient Music in our Chapel.

The line up also includes: BBC Singers, Christoph Sietzen, Helen Charlston & Toby Carr, AAM trio John Holiday, Nora Fischer & Marnix Dorrestein, and Street Orchestra Live

Entry will be free.  See the Chapel Programme here and the Great Chamber Programme here.
