PLAYLIST Collective perform music from the seminal Miles Davis album, Birth of The Cool. Using the original arrangements and nine-piece lineup, the group will explore this hugely influential repertoire adding their own contemporary voices to the mix. I'll be playing piano.
Jane Chapman who has been described as 'Britain's most progressive harpsichordist' and 'the hippest harpsichordist around' (Metro) performs a baroque and contemporary set, to include music by Ligeti, and the world premiere of my new work 'Drip Feed' (2019).
I’m excited to have a new piece, Drip Feed, premiered by the amazing harpsichordist Jane Chapman on 11 June at Baffi Portswood as part of PLAYLIST. I will also be playing piano in the PLAYLIST Collective, in which we will perform tracks from Miles Davis’ seminal album ‘Birth of the Cool’.
A few weeks ago Elizabeth Kenny performed my ‘Extending from the inside’ for solo theorbo at the launch night of PLAYLIST at God’s House Tower in Southampton. Here is a video of the performance:
I am pleased to be one of five professional musicians involved in setting up a brand new music for Southampton called PLAYLIST. The launch night of this new venture is at God’s House Tower in central Southampton on Tuesday 11th October.
The headline performer, Elizabeth Kenny, is one of Europe’s leading lute players. Liz’s programme will include my ‘Extending from the inside’, which I wrote for her in 2014. She is a brilliant and spell binding musician, not to be missed.
Also on the bill are the brilliant alternative folk trio Tenderlore and the fabulous Nicola Heinrich will perform music for solo ‘cello.
