Pfigliano 5

Pfigliano 5

by Adam James Nall

Sidney Sussex College's own Close-Harmony singers are:

Jamal Sutton,
Nicholas Morrell,
Paul Kilbey,
James Freeman
and Duncan Hewitt

---------------------------------------------------------

The Pfigliano 5 were formed in a drunken haze in late 2006 by a lecherous American tenor and his entourage of besotted undergrads. Though the line-up has changed, the spirit remains and they have already performed many times this year, including a very well-received interlude at the 1596 Foundation Feast at Sidney Sussex College and a regular set with the Sidney Sussex College Music Society (SSCMS). Their repertoire covers all corners of the cheese-spectrum, from classic barbershop numbers to Disney arrangements to quaint, mildly xenophobic music-hall songs from the 1920s.

S.L.A.G.S. - The Sidney Loving and Giving Society

S.L.A.G.S. - The Sidney Loving and Giving Society

by Adam James Nall

S.L.A.G.S -

The Sidney Loving and Giving Society annual dinner.

Some pictures come with coloured borders as specified. The white line around the photos, and the watermark, do not feature on the printed photo. The prints and frame borders were made as A4 so look good up to that size without any decrease in quality.

Enjoy.

Vexations (mono)

Vexations (mono)

by Adam James Nall

19:00 24th Nov - 14:30 25th Nov

Sidney Sussex College Music Society presents:

Vexations - Erik Satie

1 piano
10 pianists
20 hours of continuous music

performed by:

Paul Kilbey, Jamal Sutton, Jesper Carlson, Kim Ashton, James Freeman, Tom Athorne, Sarah Latto, Lydia Slobodian, MatthewTait, Will Buchanan, Joe Scott, and Emily Smith.

--------------------------------------------------------------------

Although Erik Satie wrote Vexations in 1893 its premiere had to wait until 1963, when the experimental composer John Cage organised a performance in New York. Quite why the piece had to wait seventy years for its first performance is, one is forced to admit, not really a mystery. Logistically it is a nightmare, commercially it is ridiculous, and musically it is a trail of endurance for performers and audience alike. However, since its premiere, a considerable number of performances have taken place, some of them lasting as long as 28 hours. Work has even been done studying its effect on the brain. Was all this what Satie actually intended, when he flippantly wrote:

"To play this motif 840 times in succession, it would be advisable to prepare oneself beforehand, in the deepest silence, by grave immobilities."

at the top of his score? We will never know, and therein lies the vexation.

--------------------------------------------------------------------

These are the mono series taken during (some) of the 20 hour performance. The music was un-nerving and bloody weird, I thought the photos should be too!

Johns Chapel Tower

Johns Chapel Tower

by Adam James Nall

Forgot I had these. Shots taken on a very windy day on the highest point in central Cambridge, the roof of St. Johns College Chapel Tower. Wonderful views. Oh for a better zoom and some type of anchor to stop my camera (and myself) from blowing away!
