  • Lunar Dreams @ Bloomsbury Festival - 18 Oct 2019

    I will be performing with storyteller Laura Sampson at Lunar Dreams on the 18th of October:

    Tantalisingly close, impossibly distant: the celestial bodies – the moon in particular – have flooded our imaginations since the dawn of human existence. Some of the stories that catch us most powerfully are stories of travel, exploration and discovery – the intrepid steps and giant leaps that take us to the heavens, and bring the heavens to us.

    While Luke Jerram’s iconic Museum of the Moon hangs under the vaulted roof of Bloomsbury’s Holy Cross Church, join four of London’s most exciting storytellers for a multicultural voyage around the moon’s myth and folklore. The stories will be accompanied by a galaxy of soundscapes created live by four leading sound artists, featuring the unique and uncanny sound of the theremin – an instrument the sound of which Neil Armstrong took with him to the moon and back.

    Immerse yourself in LUNAR DREAMS.

    Tickets: £10 (£8 concs)

  • Stillness performance & theremin workshop at Supernormal festival 2-4 Aug 2019

    From the Supernormal website:

    "Greta Pistaceci presents Stillness

    To celebrate the centenary of the invention of the theremin, which falls this year, Greta Pistaceci will present a performance of her piece “Stillness” in the Braziers House, a sound art composition for theremin ensemble, as well an accompanying all-ages beginners theremin playing workshop based on Stillness.

    The four thereminists to perform Stillness on this occasion are: Alex Bertram-Powell, Alina Davies, Sam Enthoven, as well as Greta herself.

    Strange things happen when one aims for perfection and stillness with every fibre of one’s being: the theremin’s “imperfection” is made manifest, and its beauty revealed. This piece would not exist without this imperfection. Failure is its success."

  • Performance of my piece Stillness

    A specially-convened theremin quartet of myself, Charlie Draper, Alina Davies and Sam Enthoven will give the first-ever live performance of my piece Stillness (2017/2018) for two or more theremins/thereminists on the 26th of May at Steep. The location for the event is The Intimate Space at St Mary's Tower, a wonderful imtimate venue with amazing acoustics. Space is limited so this is likely to sell out.

    "STEEP – a new night for adventures in electronica, improv and sound art, hosted inside The Intimate Space, a 16th century church tower in Hornsey and all that survives of the original medieval structure. Tonight’s artists: Greta Pistaceci and Howlround. Physical space in the venue is strictly limited, making for what we hope will be a uniquely intense experience. Best book ahead to be sure of getting in. Tickets are available here. Howlround will perform an exclusive new tape loop piece created especially for The Intimate Space, while Greta Pistaceci will perform her piece ‘Stillness’ for two or more theremins/thereminists, accompanied by Charlie Draper, Alina Davies and Sam Enthoven."

  • Ingrid Plum's Taut

    I was invited to contribute a score to Ingrid Plum's project Taut. Taut will take the shape of a performance, a live recording release, and a book. Details about the performance (on the 11th of March) below:

    "Inspired by studying with Meredith Monk, Taut features scores by Graham Dunning, Helen Frosi, Kelly Jayne Jones, Tania Chen, Stephan Barrett, Iris Garrelfs, Jez Riley French, Nick Hudson, Kev Nickells, Bobby Barry, Lisa Busby, Lia Mazzari, Greta Pistaceci & Timothy Thornton performed by Ingrid Plum. Pushing contemporary music notation to new horizons the 14 scores commissioned by Plum encompass classical notation, photography, poetry, embroidery, painting and more. This is Plum's most challenging work yet as a singer and an improviser.

    This performance will be a rare chance to see all the compositions performed in their entirety and it will be recorded live, becoming the album itself. Taut will be released in June with a book of the scores featuring interviews with the artists involved.

    Ingrid Plum:

    'Gorgeously atmospheric vocal techniques woven around field recordings & electronics' - The Guardian

    Plum uses her voice with extended technique, improvisation, field recordings and electronics, to create layered soundscapes, spoken word and songs. Having performed and exhibited installation sound art and visual art since 2002, she creates work that sits between sound art, improvisation, multi-media installation, neo-classical and contemporary Nordic folk music."
