INTIMATE DISTANCES

Lakeside has invited musician and composer Max Richter to create a sound response to Marilène Oliver’s fantastic sculptural exhibition. Max will be in residence during August creating a series of short pieces inspired by Marilène’s work which in itself has been created from MRI scanning techniques. During the final week of the exhibition (Saturday 28 August - Sunday 5 September), gallery visitors will be offered the use of individual personal stereos to listen to Max’s compositions as they walk round the exhibition. Composer Max Richter has been described by Time Out as “…probably the only person who can claim to have worked with both Luciano Berio and Roni Size.” His work draws on numerous sources from the European Classical tradition to Contemporary Electronica, while retaining a highly personal voice. Following a 10-year stint with Piano Circus, Max moved into the role of producer/collaborator (notably with Future Sound of London), and has subsequently released his own acclaimed albums - “memoryhouse”, on the BBC’s Late Junction label, and “ The Blue Notebooks”, which recently graced numerous best-of lists, on Fatcat.
