Just some advance warning about this year’s Huddersfield Contemporary Music Festival, which features two concerts that include new notated pieces by me, plus a performance by me (of music not by me):
Kate Halsall and Fumiko Miyachi perform the world premiere of my piece Vapour Descriptors for two pianos (and singing pianists). It’s all about the strange vocabulary of the perfume industry.
The Bozzini Quartet perform the UK premiere of my piece The Indistinguishables for string quartet and disembodied speaking voices.
This is the culmination of the tremendously exciting ‘Composer’s Kitchen’ project, which started in the wonderful city of Montreal back in June (see post below). The piece is based around the names of 70 species of UK moth and some atmospheric harmonies.
I join my favourite band, Apartment House, to perform a cover of Brian Eno’s classic album Another Green World.
Naturally, there’s a lot of other interesting things happening over the course of the festival – full details here: www.hcmf.co.uk
Very much looking forward to seeing a few of you there!
