New music, new ideas. LSO Soundhub offers composers a flexible environment to explore, collaborate and experiment, and this annual showcase gives an opportunity to hear what the four 2018/2019 Phase I composers have been working on in the last year.

Embrace the energy, questions or seduction in a soundscape full of visuals. What will you experience?

Alex Ho's Spiralling Scrolls explores British-Chinese identity and cultural difference in the context of an ever shrinking world. Scored for western and Chinese instruments, the piece explores turbulent relationships in a search for resolution.

Donal Sarsfield’s Off White presents a musical painting of sweeping multi-tonal lines. As the instruments converse, they unite and intertwine, and every so often retreat into a musical soliloquy.

Feel the energy of Zen symbolism in Keting Sun’s Ensō as musicians and a dancer, Huang Xiao, emulsify into a fluid of movement and sound, visibly painting the flow of the music on a large canvas.

Light sculptures and theatrics collide as the music in Jamie Man’s Outrenoir II: Appetitus (2019) whispers to the audience in pitch black. Hear and feel the presence of the Other emerge from a dark canvas, resonating through sexual energy and visual after-images.*

*Please note: that this piece features pitch black darkness and flashing lights. If you would like more information, please get in touch with Natalia Franklin Pierce ([email protected]) about the nature of this.
