Students from Drayton Manor High School will show off the results of their recent research into Mozart and the digital age at the latest Ealing Autumn Festival painting exhibition open day.
Hanwell Library is hosting the artwork, depicting Truth and Reconciliation with a special reference to Shakespeare in the playwright’s 400th year, which is on display until July 21.
The open day at the library on Saturday, June 16 (2-4pm) will include the opportunity to take part in a public collage of the exhibition, while the Drayton Manor students will show how a game using dice, and devised by Mozart way back in the 18th century, can be used to create a new piece of music, which can even be adapted to write your own pop song.
Festival artistic director Gillian Spragg said: “During the exhibition’s recent open day at Perivale Library the Digital MozArt was a big hit with visitors and a number of people said that they will be doing further research into writing new pieces of music using Mozart’s clever game.”
The exhibition takes an abstract view of Truth and Reconciliation and is a major part of this year’s festival, touring libraries across the borough until early next year.
