ARTIST LED AUDIO TOUR

Tina Havelock Stevens’ works encourage an experience of the world that is attuned to emotional responses, to the rhythm and movement of structures and environments that we inhabit and traverse. She brings together her energy and drive as a drummer and performer with the inquiry and observation of her experience as a documentary film-maker. Present in her works is an innate aural and visual intuition. They offer the experience of suspended time, gauging the cerebral temperature and tempo of passing moments.

“I love things that travel and soar. I love quiet and loud. Fast and slow. I love minor chords, intuitive surprises and whatever that equivalent is in all of my visual work too. I like that an audience can share an experience but have multiple perspectives.” – Tina Havelock Stevens
