“A Post-structuralist Fantasy & Freezywater”
Composer Leo Chadburn introduces Peter Greenaway’s fantastical short film, Vertical Features Remake (1978), which parodies and plays with the ideas of structuralist cinema, and his own work for chamber ensemble and speaking voices, Freezywater, which shares some parallel concerns.
Our bi-weekly Listening Group meets to listen and to discuss a wide variety of music.
This symposium that will consider touch in sound and music from a broad perspective, including the political, social, technological and aesthetic. It will bring together researchers and practitioners from both a musical and non-musical background for a day of spoken presentations and performances.
CUEE (City Experimental Ensemble) are a wide-ranging, free-wheeling large ensemble of young improvisers and experimental musicians, led by Tullis Rennie. They are delighted to welcome composer and baritone saxophonist Cath Roberts as their special guest. They will perform a number of her works, including a new piece written specially for the ensemble. The concert will also include new works by postgraduate composers, devised pieces by smaller groups from within CUEE, animated visual scores, conduction and free improvisation.
Based at City, University of London, CUEE recently worked with composer Michael Finnissy for an event marking his 70th, and have also performed the work of Pauline Oliveros with Seth Cluett.
