INCLUDES EXCLUSIVE VIDEO COMBINED ARTS TRACKS> PLUS FULL-LENGTH MUSIC TRACKS!
This audio and video disc was created during ArtiPeeps' second large-scale combined arts project The Nine Realms in 2015. It combines the poetry, music and art of 45 poets, writers, artists and musicians from around the UK and the globe who took part in a 9 month online Norse-inspired project run through the ArtiPeeps website.
The disc was edited and overseen by myself with the help of a trained sound technician from Future Radio in Norwich, and it is a real labour of love. On the disc you'll find 40 poems from the initiative read by the poets themselves, celebrating the stories and myths from Norse mythology. You will also find 18 art pieces engaging with Norse material, particularly the nine realms. 3 musicians were also specially commissioned to write 3 pieces of realm music each. Together the poetry, art and music represent not only a celebration of collaboration, but also of the Icelandic sagas which influence the way we tell stories even now.
Track 1 on the disc is in a video format and combines all the material from our project together.
Tracks 2-10 are in an audio format and are the full-length music pieces created for this project.
The DVD will work in all formats barring a CD player, and comes in a square white slipcase 12 cm x 12 cm, with a black and white Nine Realms logo on the front and disc information on the back. The onbody has a striking celtic design embossed on it and was created by illustrator and graphic artist Gary Caldwell (flowland.co.uk).
The Nine Realms was supported by Arts Council England and Norfolk County Council.
This is the first time we have created a disc like this, that embodies the entirity of a project of ours in one crafted element. This disc is significant because we hope to always create a similar combined arts entity in all our future large-scales.
