Murat Ali Cengiz
Saturday, 10th September
Presentation and performance by composer and architect Murat Ali Cengiz, with a piece that is inspired by the architecture of the building. The design of the former Baptist Church, (G. Kuiper, 1951) stands out because of the beautiful high windows and the impressive concrete skeleton that spans the space.
“I spent many hours staring at the massive concrete ceiling and trying to hear sound reflecting from it. At some point I have noticed the subdivisions of the ceiling were quite like the windows around it. Almost as if the windows were continuing up to the ceiling but instead of a window to the outside world the ceiling became a window to my imagination.”
