Keeping Score
after the singing and engraving

“Keeping Score” was an evening of opera and glass engraving in association with Art-y-fakt Gallery.  The event was Curated by Thomas Manhart and Dominic Fondé and held in December 2008.

This unique outreach event was a chance for the art of glass engraving to meet music. During the course of the evening a selection of singers, chosen by Thomas Manhart, performed a number of opera arias. Dominic Fondé then gave a series of talks and demonstrations, transcribing the music onto wine glasses using the engraving process, which provided a visual echo of the singing performances.
