Locus+ and the De La Warr Pavilion are pleased to invite you to the launch of a new co-commission by Ron Geesin entitled Blackbird Quadralogue.

The astonishing vocal repertoire and intricate jazz-infused riffs of the Blackbird; one of the UK's most familiar songbirds, is revealed in a new octophonic sound composition that combines Geesin's long-term fascination with birdsong and his fundamental interest in jazz.

Drawing together the calls of four Blackbirds as they move through one year, Blackbird Quadralogue is a dynamic sensory experience.

Launch: Saturday 4th October, 2014 from noon

Exhibition: 4th October - 30th November, 2014

Talk: Saturday 29th November, 2014 at 2pm. Ron Geesin in conversation with Peter Holden MBE
