US Avant-garde balloon music virtuoso Judy Dunaway will present a solo concert, followed by her audience participation piece “Balloon Symphony No. 2,” at Axis Arts Centre, Cheshire Campus, Manchester Metropolitan University on Tuesday 1 November, 2016 as part of her Autumn 2016 European Tour. Dunaway plays a variety of shapes and sizes of amplified latex balloon instruments, each with its own special qualities, pushing the extremes of both pitch range and artistic limits. Her large rubbed “tenor” balloon gives Jimmy Hendrix’s guitar a run for its money and her giant balloon pulsates into the depths of the subaudio. Her abstract music and sounds are difficult to equate with other forms, responding to the perception of the individual like the images seen in fire or clouds
Dunaway’s art form combines a highly irreverent attitude toward the musical establishment with intensely serious dedication to her work. No one on earth can do what Judy Dunaway does with a balloon. For fans of experimental, unusual and cutting-edge ideas, this is an event not to be missed.
Axis Arts Centre brings contemporary theatre, dance, music and spoken word to Crewe and surrounding areas. All shows are open to the public.
