Cities & Sunsets

On Sunday, my tape piece from last summer in­spired by the light­ness and quick­ness of aural ex­per­i­ence in urban spaces, La leggerezza delle città, will be played as part of the 15th bi­an­nual Manchester Theatre in Sound (MANTIS) Festival. This edi­tion bears the title ‘Manchester’s Sonic Meta-ontology’ and will ex­plore Manchester’s sounds through a variety of con­certs and in­stall­a­tion pieces. You can find it here on Facebook.

On Monday, my solo piano work 3 Sunsets re­ceives its second per­form­ance by good friend Sebastian Grand. He plays a pro­gramme of landscape-inspired works that also in­cludes Ligeti’s Arc-en-ciel, Takemitsu’s Rain Tree II and Cage’s In a Landscape in a short af­ter­noon re­cital at the Royal Academy of Music. It’s in the David Josefowitz Recital Hall at 2pm.
