Beyond Pierrot Lunaire - The Pierrot Project

The Pierror Project
The Pierrot Project
The Pierrot Project was originally conceived of by curator Niamh White, composer Ewan Campbell and pianist Alex Wilson. With a shared love of Arnold Schoenberg’s Pierrot Lunaire, they wanted to create events that combined both music and art, and establish opportunities for talented young artists and musicians to work together in informal settings for large cross-arts audiences. For their latest project in 2016, the exhibition – The Pierrot Studio – composers Ewan Campbell, Stef Conner and Chris Roe will be working with visual artists Tim A Shaw, Jörg Obergfell and Sara Naim, creating installations influenced by the life and work of Arnold Schoenberg, combining music and sound with art and sculpture. These installations will be displayed for 2 weeks from February 5th-17th 2016 at Display Gallery in Holborn.

Alongside these the contemporary chamber ensemble the Dr K. Sextet and soprano Lesley-Jane Rogers will perform three concerts amongst the installations. These will feature the world premieres by these composers and works by other emerging artists, as well as a performance of Pierrot Lunaire.

You can read more about the project on their website, and they are looking for support through Kickstarter so do visit their Kickstarter page.
