Marvel at the moon at Burns&Beyond

Monday 21st to Friday 25th January

A fusion of lunar imagery, moonlight and surround sound, join us at the iconic St Giles Cathedral to marvel at the Museum of the Moon, a new touring artwork by UK artist Luke Jerram.

Measuring seven metres in diameter and featuring detailed NASA imagery of the lunar surface, each centimetre of the internally lit spherical sculpture represents 5km of the moon’s surface.

Museum of the Moon by artist Luke Jerram, co-commissioned by a number of creative organisations brought together by Luke Jerram and Norfolk & Norwich Festival.

To celebrate the installation, Burns&Beyond will present an accompanying programme of lunar inspired events, talks and concerts beneath the moon.

Saturday 26th January

Museum of the Moon with Martin Green

Brought together for a Closing Night one-off special performance, marvel at Luke Jerram’s Museum of the Moon lunar imagery and moonlight with award-winning composer Martin Green (Lau) who brings together elements of vocal harmony, brass, and live electronic manipulation to create a sonic world that is both entirely contemporary and immediately at home in the historic setting of St Giles’ Cathedral.

Martin Green’s piece will feature the heart-breaking sounds of Dublin a cappella quartet Landless with the rich sound of Alba Brass, now something of an institution in modern brass playing. Included in the piece will be settings of the Burns collected songs Ca’ The Yowes and Lassie Lie Near me.

Green is well known both for his work with the ground-breaking Lau, and as a composer at the forefront of the contemporary music scene. Recent commissioners have included The Kronos Quartet, Opera North, The Barbican, London and Edinburgh International Festival. With Lau he has received several BBC Folk Awards and he has been awarded the Paul Hamlyn Award for Composers.
