Sentinel, part of Open Spaces Festival, is a multi-sensory performance of electronic music from composer Richard Evans (previously, a keyboardist with James).
Lush synths and electro rhythms mixed with live vocals create a mesmerising soundtrack to data art, laser lighting & video for this captivating show inspired by themes of climate change and forced migration.
The show explores our planet’s near-future with each song accompanied by visualisations of real-world climate and refugee data from award-winning artist Valentina D’Efilippo (co-author, The Infographic History of the World), and with vocals by singer Charlotte Dalton.
Sentinel is a call-to-action without words. The show is a multi-sensory journey through the present and future effects of global warming, creating a layered perspective on the planet’s most urgent issue.
Richard states: “Sentinel is a creative response to climate change and forced migration, which are among the most urgent issues we face today. The show is about all our futures and we hope it will entertain, inform and inspire.”
Sentinel is produced by Cold Star Media, with kind support from Arts Council England, Waterside & Manchester Science Festival.
