Listen Show 16 : A special feature on David Daniels’ exhibition Music Wanting to be Played
Award winning graphic artist and animator David Daniels was LISTEN’s designer, creating images, cards, posters, logos and the general look of the project. He has designed and directed commercials for Honda, Nat West Bank, Nokia, Nike, Co-Op Bank amongst others and created stage set graphic and projection graphics for Led Zeppelin o2 reunion concert, Roger Waters, The Wall, Berlin and two Bryan Adams World Tours. He has created broadcast graphics for Channel 4, Discovery, CNN, VH-1 and MTV televsion. His work has been shown worldwide including at the Museo Reina Sofia in Madrid and the Pompidou Centre in Paris.
David created an exhibition in the Round Tower Gallery of Black Swan Arts called ‘Music Wanting to be Played’. It can be seen as a kind of graphic musical notation and several musicians gave performances during the LISTEN Season interpreting the images.
In this programme you will hear contributions from harpist Vicki Burke, saxophonist Nick Sorensen and a trio formed by overtone singer and multi-instrumentalist Michael Ormiston with singers Amanda Relph and Hilary Franklin as well as extracts from a conversation between the artist and LISTEN curator Helen Ottaway.
