November 3 @ 3:30 pm - 10:30 pm£25
DEEP MINIMALISM 2.0 Sunday
Part of Classical Season 2019/20
The second day of a weekend dedicated to meditative listening and deep concentration.
What can you expect from this weekend?
The soft strains of Malibu’s spoken voice with swells of 16 live cellos and cut-up sound Foley. The entombing chorales of Nivhek, featuring shimmering vibraphone.
The slowly layering canons of John Luther Adams’ Canticles of the Sky, 16 individual cello lines evoking the movement of sun and moon in a fantasy sky.
The dark underworld chromaticism of Morton Feldman’s Triadic Memories, where the flow of piano tones become an unspoken mantra to infinity.
Laura Cannell’s long-drawn studies of medieval folk fiddle and double pipe music, riffing on melodies which feel both close at hand and buried by stages of modernity.
