J.S. Loveard Collaboration with Via Nova
J.S. Loveard, one of the Literary Practice PhDs from the Warwick Writing Programme, has collaborated with Birmingham-based experimental vocal ensemble Via Nova on their recording project Where the Marsh Plants Grow. He contributes a text for a brand new piece “Rogation” which through the medieval holy festival of Rogationtide meditates on the past, boundaries, and violence. Through improvisation, the piece was devised by Via Nova with guidance by their musical director, Daniel Galbreath and J.S. Loveard. It sits proudly alongside works by contemporary composers Kerry Andrew, Emily Doolittle, Percy Pursglove, and Olly Chalk in an album that explores ‘the many ways through which we relate to the earth: through science and agriculture, through metaphor and memory, through our very bodies’.
Where the Marsh Plants Grow was a recording project funded by Arts Council England, and as of Friday 15th May, is available for CD and download on the Focused Silence record label: https://www.focusedsilence.com/product/via-nova-where-the-marsh-plants-grow/
