We are pleased to invite you to the presentation of Old House Noises (the Sleeper, the Dreamer and the Guard), a publication-in by Ash Kilmartin. Her 6-week residency at SYB will be concluded on the 28th of July, with a reading of her work accompanied by the Groningen Vocal Exploration Choir, and a conversation with Vanessa van ‘t Hoogt. In her research, she connects Frisian Klokkenstoelen (bell towers) with her ongoing interest in sound, voice and medieval allegory.
