Graham’s Orrery & Seven Face Pictures – 1st & 7th October
Two upcoming events to tell you about. On Saturday pianist Andrew Wilson-Dickson will workshop a short new piece of mine at Cardiff’s Canton Uniting Church, as part of the Primavera Crossing Borders day. ‘Graham’s Orrery‘ is the name of my piece, and you can read about its planetary inspiration here. Andrew will be workshopping 13 new pieces and performing a handful in the evening concert. Here’s the poster.
The following Friday, October 7, sees a collaboration between two ensembles that have played my work before, Trio Atem and Raise Your Voice Collective, in an evening that also features music by the 265 Quartet. Trio Atem will be giving their second performance of my Seven Face Pictures alongside music by Morton Feldman, Ian Vine, Martin Iddon, Georges Aperghis and Michael Mayhew. We’ll also hear Raise Your Voice performing some Reich, Feldman, Pesson and a recent piece by co-founder Chris Swithinbank. It will be held at Manchester’s International Anthony Burgess Foundation, and you can find details and tickets here.
