Audiovisability has now moved from the Arlington Arts centre to its second home of the series - the Arab British Centre in London. This time, the exhibition has been somewhat downsized to focus particularly on the Middle Eastern influences within the project. The exhibition features selected works by Deaf artists, Omeima Mudawi-Rowlings (textiles) and Rubbena Aurangzeb-Tariq (paints on canvas), and hearing artist, Lisa Harker (paints on canvas).
Last night, I took part in the launch event alongside Ruth and three other talented musicians to showcase the work to the London Deaf Community. Together, we performed Waseem Kotoub's 'Magic of the Middle East' and Mozart's flute quartet in D Major. The former piece was commissioned by Audiovisability and written specially for the project. A short video of the live 'Magic of the Middle East' performance can be found here:
The night was thoroughly enjoyable, and it was great fun to hear different people's thoughts about the project including the art and music featured. It was also a wonderful opportunity to play with Ruth and the other musicians at this unique event.
