Epiphany returned to Ashburnham Place in E. Sussex in early March to play Sound Portraits and other improvisations for staff and student volunteers from around the world. We were also joined by visual artist Faith Heath and by photographer Rachel KileyRead More
Epiphany has close links with several art galleries around the UK. In November 2012 we were invited by the Whitworth Art Gallery in Manchester to spend a day as a ‘live installation’ in the Gallery, playing improvised music in one section of the gallery each hour, and also moving round the gallery to respond with improvised music to specific pieces of artwork. It was at that event that we came up with the idea of playing ‘Sound Portraits’ for individual people. You can discover more about our unique Sound Portraits here.
Since that time we’ve returned on several occasions to the Whitworth, but also to Manchester Art Gallery and John Rylands Library at the invitation of art curator Lesley Sutton as she put on a ‘Passion Art Trail’ leading up to Easter 2014.
In September of that year Epiphany spent an evening at the National Portrait Gallery in London responding to artworks in the Gallery and offering individual Sound Portraits to visitors. Then in spring 2015 we returned to the newly reopened Whitworth to respond with improvised music to a specific exhibition in the Gallery. We also performed a live art to improvised performance with artist Naomi Kendrick in July 2016.
In recent years, we have performed twice in Tate Modern Liverpool where we responded to works in one of their major exhibitions and also in Manchester Art Gallery where we worked with Lesley Sutton at her Passion Art trail 2016.

Some of our previous projects
Tadley Arts Festival (nr. Basingstoke)
Epiphany enjoyed taking part in a new Arts Festival in Tadley (near Basingstoke) on 19th October. The day was based at St Mary's Church in Tadley and we be played improvised responses to some of the artworks, then played Sound Portraits for several people. Then in the evening we led a creative 'Happening' event.
