New piece for Arditti Quartet and Ensemble Modern
July 27, 2017 - newsI’m about to start working on a new piece for Arditti Quartet and Ensemble Modern commissioned by Wien Modern for 2018. The festival theme is security, and the piece is going to explore social relationships between two unequal groups as a mechanism for generating the music. I am seriously excited about this project, especially as the piece will be paired with Brian Ferneyhough’s Umbrations. The festival will also include a performance of interspersed sometimes with weeds and brambles which I wrote for the Ardittis in 2013.
