A new series of informal early evening events in the Library in The Red House, Aldeburgh, curated and presented by soprano Juliet Fraser in association with eavesdropping, her festival of experimental music.

始末 (shimatsu): beginning and ending, management, dealing settlement, cleaning up, getting rid of (usually bad) end result.

In Shimatsu, Ryoko Akama projects her ideas with contraptions made out of objects, domestic appliances and heat electronic devices, creating a subtle, sometimes arrestingly silent, listening situation. Her recent performances talk of heat ecosystems and temperature phenomena.

eavesdropping at The Red House is an opportunity to meet artists experimenting at the fringes of various musical genres and to hear what they’re working on at the moment.

6pm start for a relaxed hour of music and chat, with drinks served beforehand.
