New Music North West – Hold on to your hats

Who's Driving_

Wow. There’s an exciting week ahead for me, but also for every interested listener in the North West. It’s the New Music North West festival. There are dozens of performances across the Manchester area based around the RNCM, University of Manchester, Salford University, Media City and Chetham’s presenting a gloriously wide spectrum of music. If you’re looking for orchestral music, chamber opera, ensemble and multi-media performances and community engagement – we’ve got it right here.

I’ve also got a presentation at the RNCM about my new collaboration with super hero of the saxophone Rob Buckland with animation by Anthony Jay (he of the image for this post) as well as the première of Dark Room (Study I) for vibraphone and electronics – snapshots of my latest experiments with new sounds and ways of performing.

NMNW17 – See you there!

Who’s Driving? is on Wednesday 15th November at 17.00 at the RNCM

Dark Room (Study I) is on Friday 17th November at 17.00 at Chetham’s School of Music.
