Saudade Soundscape- Deena Jackman

Visit the beautiful historic Opera House in Boscombe and be immersed in a new sound work produced by British Iranian Musican Deena Jackson.

Saudade is Brazilian Portuguese word describing a deep emotional state, often for something or someone that is absent. Deena will be performing live with a work specially commissioned for the BEAF festival. Audiences will be able to experience the music in the round, as Deena creates a musical soundscape enveloping the immense empty space of the Opera House. The performance is for limited numbers and will be a standing performance (seating available).

Iranian musician Deena Jackman is a composer, producer, curator and DJ. Trained in Music Design and with an MA in Sound Design from Bournemouth University she was awarded a music research grant from the British Institute of Persian Studies. With clients including Avaya, Traumfrau, QTIPOC Narratives and Absolute Music, she has also been a support act for The XX, The Fall, John Cooper Clarke, and has performed at Brighton Pride, Boomtown Festival, Bestival Women’s International Day, London Jazz Festival, the Barbican Centre and Colston Hall. Deena has over 10 years experience in youth music education, working with hard to reach young people in Bournemouth.
