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.
What will you experience?
Alex Ho's Spiralling Scrolls explores British-Chinese identity through literal and abstract distances between cultures and ideas. Scored for western and Chinese instruments, the piece explores relationships pushing and pulling against each other in a search for resolution.
Donal Sarsfield’s Off White presents a musical painting of a series of sweeping multi-tonal lines. As the instruments converse, they unite and intertwine, yet ever so often dip into 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 whilst performing with ink.
Lighting (Ben Zamora) 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 the dark canvas, resonating through sexual energy and physiological afterimages.*
*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.
