Have diversity and you can ride the ebb and flow. (Sunday Times, 2013)

The waves lapping at your feet, to the ebb and flow of our everyday lives, of love and loss, our 2021 digital creative team, showcase their understanding of ebb and flow. With specially crafted music and visual art in tandem, this MusicFest experience will place the tidal patterns of the gorgeous coastline of Cardigan bay front and centre.

Although a digital, screening experience, audience members may also have the opportunity to actively engage with this installation through in-person performance.

This is not to be missed!

What is this collaboration?

This is a specially-commissioned collaboration in which two creatives, either based in or from Wales, will have the opportunity to collaborate with one another and create a digital installation inspired by the rich landscape and culture of Aberystwyth, and premiered as part of our International Music Festival and Summer School in summer 2021.

Claire and Sally will collaborate with one another to create a digital installation responding to a theme of their choosing inspired by the rich landscape and culture of Aberystwyth (the sea, land, and ecology of the area, the beautiful Ceredigion coastline, to Cantre’r Gwaelod, for example).

After a national call for creatives, the selection panel of industry experts were excited to see a broad range of high quality, inventive, and forward thinking visual art and music. The Festival are excited that this will be the first in many opportunities to support and platform cross-arts collaboration, and look forward to working with partners and supporters in the future to bring even more opportunities to you.
