Join us for world premiere performances of Melting, Shifting, Liquid World on the iconic Great Map at the National Maritime Museum. 

This is a new immersive musical piece written by composer Hollie Harding for Trinity Laban String Ensemble and electric viola soloist Nic Pendlebury. 
Written especially to be performed on the Great Map at the National Maritime Museum, this is a 30-minute live performance for string ensemble exploring the themes of climate change and ocean pollution. It includes a pre-recorded tape part delivered to the audience over bone-conduction open-ear headphones. 
This event is also part of the Trinity Laban Parallax Series which showcases new research work by Trinity Laban students and staff.
