I'm delighted be part of an amazing day of music at Kings Place on April 30th! It's three concerts curated by The Riot Ensemble; I'll be in the first. As always with The Riot Ensemble, it's an enormously varied cavalcade of sounds. My piece, Sparrow, is a double bass piece that uses this large instrument to evoke a tiny bird. It's delicate and playful, but also serious. You can book for the event here.
My piece is all about looking out a window at the world outside. It will be presented alongside two pieces about staring into the digital world. Jagoda Szmytka's Sky-Me, Type Me is wild depiction of Skype call, which is written for four musicians with megaphones. Alex Hall's SPIN is a slice of digital gothic demotivation, channelling Peleton pessimism.
If I were you though, I'd stay for the whole day. The Riot Ensemble have brought in L'Arsenale Ensemble and Hub New Music as partners in two further concerts which promise an interesting array of new sounds. I'll be particularly excited to hear new pieces by Aaron Holloway-Nahum and Nina C Young.
