Sonia Boyce: For you, only you

Mikhail Karikis


22 - 26 May 2008

For you, only you was a collaboration between sound artist Michael Karikis and the early music consort Alamire conducted by David Skinner, Director of Music at Sidney Sussex College, Cambridge. Originated by Sonia Boyce, the piece was first performed at Magdalen College Chapel, Oxford in 2007 and explores the boundary between classical music and sound art. The work comprises an unlikely conversation across centuries between the sublime harmonies of the Renaissance composer Josquin Desprez and Karikis’ own more troubled, contemporary voice. To coincide with the performance, a three-screen video installation of For you, only you was also be presented at Stowe Park.
