What does death sound like? Sound is the last sense present moments before death. Working with a number of collaborators, Australian visual artist Saskia Moore has 'transcribed the actual music and sounds people heard while having a near death experience' and used these as a source for her new work Dead Symphonies for voice, cello, harp, marimba, keyboards and electronics. The work is being performed at Turner Contemporary in Margate on 6 July 2013 by the ensemble Apartment House. There are two performances, at 4pm and 6pm, and at 5pm Moore and Apartment House's director Anton Lukoszevieze will talk about their collaboration, the project and near death experiences.
