Raise Your Voice Line-Up Announced

Raise Your Voice Collective, which I help run, have just an­nounced the line-up for their second outing of con­tem­porary clas­sical, ex­per­i­mental elec­tronics and chilled-out beats at Centro Bar in Manchester’s Northern Quarter. It’s an ex­citing mix, stretching from Martin Suckling’s Passacaglie for cello and elec­tronics ori­gin­ally written to make use of the Hyperbow de­veloped at MIT, via the sor­didly urban an­gular lines and ir­reg­ular rhythms of Tom Coult’s Avian Riots, to Steve Pycroft’s Richter VS Dragon, which ap­plies re-mixing and mash-up tech­niques to in­stru­mental music, and ending with a live DJ set from Al Sonar of Hit&Run. Also among the pieces being played will be my piece The Golden Lion Hotel for per­cus­sion and electronics.

The night is Friday 14 May and takes place as part of the FutureEverything Festival Showcase. Check out the Raise Your Voice web­site for more details.
