Hertfordshire Youth Choir will be singing ‘Interplay II’ for choir, piano and electronics in St. Saviours Church in St. Albans on Wednesday. We had a rehearsal last night and it sounded great. It promises to be a great concert with an interesting and varied programme and it kicks off at 7.30.
I had a brilliant day yesterday working with the Musarc choir at St. Stephen Walbrook Church. The choir commissioned three composers, Neil Luck, Tom Chant and myself to work with the choir on new pieces. I wrote a new piece ‘Interplay II’ for choir, piano and live electronics. The choir were a joy to work with and their director Cathy Heller Jones did an amazing job conducting my piece. A recording is already available thanks to Joseph Kohlmaier and while I think the electronics could perhaps be louder and further developed I think the piece as a whole is rather effective!
