Art video filmed in Darlington celebrating early musical notation goes online

Darlington and Stockton Times: Scales printed on the hand are used to control the notes sung by the Durham Scratch Choir Scales printed on the hand are used to control the notes sung by the Durham Scratch Choir

A VIDEO featuring choirs singing along to musical scales printed on the hands of the Darlington public has been posted online.

Newcastle-based Artist Anton Hecht created The Singing Project piece earlier this month which involved choirs from County Durham and Darlington singing in locations across Darlington town centre.

Members of the public pressed the notes printed on their hands and the choirs sang the corresponding tune.

The piece celebrates the foundation of musical notation and can be viewed at youtube.com/watch?v=MmR716ZTqL8

The video is one of a series of outdoor artworks created by Mr Hecht who has previously filmed members of the public dancing in Darlington’s market square and covered market.
