My new ensemble work The Congregation Between the Induction of my Divine Impulse is Exalted will be premiered on Wednesday 23 October at Blackheath Halls by Trinity Laban Contemporary Music Group, conducted by Gregory Rose. This will be an extravaganza of performance, installation, live musicians, movement and electronics. It's based upon Soosan Lolavar's recent cello Concerto Tradition-Hybrid-Survival and takes her themes of cultural dislocation and evolution several steps further. (The extravagant tile is what happened when we put Soosan's title through Google Translate in a complicated chain of English/ Farsi/ Arabic translations and mistranslations.)
Parts and Poems of the Body will be performed by Catherine Underhill and Hannah Shilvock at Southwark Cathedral on Tuesday 29 October, 3.15pm. This piece is an ongoing, open-ended score and there will be a new section included in this performance.
