Life Lines: Benjamin Owen’s New Vocal Club a review by Greg Thomas
The New Vocal Club is a two-year-long project celebrating voices across Perthshire, exploring how vocal cultures and musical performance connect us to ourselves, to the community, and to place. Bringing together an intergenerational group of musicians alongside the voices of the community.
The New Vocal Club’s intention was to trial new platforms for social exchange as we emerge from the shadow of the pandemic; to use film and performance, to amplify voices marginalised by Covid-19 and age, and to create visually striking film works within a uniquely collaborative framework, whereby the process of making each moving-image work is meaningful and inclusive to the widest possible public.
Work is made in collaboration with those who have a strong connection to voice, music, and sound.
