In pictures: Compton Verney event - 'Music of the Spheres – Story of Water'
An extraordinary new event came to the grounds of Compton Verney Art Gallery and Park last weekend.
David Beaumont, a Kineton resident, who attended the event with his wife, Elizabeth, shared a few of his photos of the event.
The event held on Sunday August 23 called 'Music of the Spheres – Story of Water' featured dancers and musicians performing in transparent orbs which move around the audience.
David said: "I've never seen anything like it. I thought it was very good."
Musicians performed a 45-minute set include Michael Ormiston, one of Europe’s leading exponents of Mongolian overtone – or throat - singing. Michael also played Tibetan singing bowls, a Mongolian horsehead fiddle and a wide range of other instruments from the Far East.
Joining him in the show was Steve Wishart, a composer who specialises in creating performances on the hurdy gurdy.
The concluding part of the staged show was a performance by the duo of Sylvia Hallett and Mike Adcock. They performed on violin, accordion and percussion plus more uncommon instruments, including a slate xylophone and amplified bicycle wheel.
The musical performance were accompanied by dancers who appeared within a number of giant spheres and domes.
The largest sphere, the size of a four-storey building, spun around with a dancer inside while rolling across Compton Verney’s lake.
