Rainbow-Shooting Cloud Contraption – 21 June

It’s the 67th Aldeburgh Festival this month, and my piece Rainbow-Shooting Cloud Contraption for 15 players is being performed on Saturday 21st by the Britten-Pears Composers Ensemble, conducted by Gregory Charette. The piece was written at Aldeburgh’s Contemporary Composition course last year, run by Oliver Knussen, Colin Matthews and Michael Gandolfi. The concert is at 6pm at the Britten Studio at Snape Maltings. The concert also features pieces by Elliott Carter, Louis Chiappetta, Bruno Maderna, Nicholas Moroz, Robert Peate, Emma Ruth Richards and Michael Taplin.

In other news, Psappha have released a great video of them performing Enmîmés sont les gougebosqueux at Manchester’s Cosmo Rodewald Hall in March:
