Good tidings we bring!

Hello Nocta-nauts, just a brief one this time around, although it’s jammed packed full of lovely things.

First things first, we are absolutely thrilled, excited, over moon and all the other affectations about Coventry winning the City of Culture 2021. Coventry was where we all met (6 years ago! How is that even possible?) we learnt our craft at Coventry University and saw what it had to offer and now it is, and will always be, our second home. We can’t wait to see what the next few years will bring and we are throughly looking forward to being a part of something very special. Our commiserations are with the other City of Culture contenders, do not let your hard work and effort go to waste, keep on building and keep on going.

In other exciting news Coventry’s very own Delia Derbyshire was awarded an honorary doctorate at last months graduation ceremony from Coventry University. We are very proud to know that this sensational woman, the Mother of Modern music, has been recognised for her ground breaking work and we feel honoured to be making a show about her work.

In addition to this we have been working closely with Coventry sound artist and engineer, Tim Seeley and Coventry University to develop a series of workshops for schools based around science, maths and music. These will inform children of Delia’s work but will also get them to think about how stem subjects, such as maths and science, can be used in music and other avenues. Our very first workshop ran a couple of weeks ago, and it was a huge success, you can read about it here.

We hope these workshops continue to inspire the next generation of mathematicians, scientists and musicians.

What an exciting couple of months it has been and an all around great year too. To think that ‘Hymns for Robots’ started life as a Shopfront installation in Berlin back in February and is now a show is mind boggling but fantastic! We can’t wait to see what 2018 has install for us and we’d like thank everyone for their continuing support on our journey.

From all of us here have a very merry Christmas and a Happy New Year, and keep your eyes peeled as we keep you up to date on all things Noctium.
