Reflections on Green Man

The Green Man Festival was a very new and exhilirating experience for us, as musicians and actors more used to performing in the insulated environments of theatres and concert halls. The idea of performing an atmospheric piece of music theatre that uses the subtle sounds of hand drums and temple bowls as well as whispering and singing without amplification in a tent is frightening at the best of times. Since the surface of the tent gives no reflections or resonance to the voices and instruments, the sound gets swallowed up and much of the subtlety is lost, making performers have to work extremely hard just to hear themselves let alone communicate with an audience. So to do that in the middle of a festival with strains of amplified bands coming at you from three sides was surely madness! On top of that, daylight leaked through the seams of the tent and the projector beam was weak so sight and sound were both somewhat compromised. Yet the opportunity to perform amidst this transient hub of cultural adventure, from falafels to wicker men, Squarepusher to Tim Minchin, was an experience we wouldn't want to have missed. The aim of the everything and nothing project is to perform to audiences outside the usual reach for either mathematics and contemporary music: at the Green Man we certainly achieved that. Our very able performers carried off fine performances despite the odds and by all accounts the piece was very well received. If we can shine through under those conditions we can do anything!
