ST HELENS Central Library is becoming quite accustomed to hosting musical events.

And this Saturday a day of music with a difference will take place as unplanned, improvised music is set to be played.

The day will take place at the venue as part of St Helens Council’s Cultural Hubs – Arts In Libraries programme and commissioned by the Heart of Glass.

It has come about from a project is led by local musician Mark Peel through his music production company, Organic Planets.

Mark and fellow improvisers Ben Cunliffe and Mali Davies hope to take people on an evocative journey to experience music at the point it is created, before it is cut, copied and pasted in editing and production.

The music will not be recorded and what people hear will remain in memory from the day, entitled Extemporise.

Cllr Andy Bowden, the council's cabinet member for public health and wellbeing said: “Heart of Glass and Cultural Hubs are all about exciting arts events so it's really interesting to see a Heart of Glass prototype commission taking place in Central Library.

“Improvised music allows musicians the opportunity to collaborate together and create music in new ways, the fact that the session is taking place in a library where you traditionally wouldn’t expect a band to play is especially innovative and I'm really looking forward to hearing the results.”

The event takes place between 10am and 3pm on Saturday, August at Central Library and there is no need to book.
