Vibrant imagery, live camera work, electronics and acoustic instruments are joined by the voices of the Jemma van der Byl Faversham Choir.   Carpe Vitam goes on a journey documenting women making their own way in the world, including footage from 100 years ago, women working during WW1, the struggle for women’s rights to work and votes for women, through to present day, with video/projection art created from new and archive footage of great female role models. The text for Carpe Vitam, with music composed by Laura Rossi, is from quotes and poems from inspirational women (which are sung by the choir and spoken). Multi-instrumentalist and sound sculptor, Henry Dagg has composed, created and will perform the last 10 minutes of the work – the ‘DerbyshOramiCoda’, which segues in from Rossi’s composition and is inspired by electronic music pioneers Delia Derbyshire and Daphne Oram.
