Date: Tues 6th Nov, 2019
Time: 2-5pm Venue: Bell Percussion, Red Room
Ahead of our performances with them in Birmingham and London in February 2019, the PRS Foundation made it possible for us to workshop new piece by Alexander Hawkins and Kit Downes which will blend their ensembles (the Alexander Hawkins & Evan Parker Woods Duo, and ENEMY) with Riot Ensemble musicians for an evening that combines notation, improvisation, and electronics. We worked with each composer for 90 minutes, and they took away recordings, notes, parts and ideas to complete their pieces over the winter holiday.
Date: Mon 17th Sept, 2018
Time: 7.30pm Venue: Kings Place, Hall Two
Built around two of Philip Venables most exciting chamber pieces (Illusions and numbers 91-95) this concert also features our first performance of Sarah Nemstov (Central Park / Manhattan),Lee Hyla’s raucous We Speak Etruscan (a piece that imagines a new (fake) language, spoken by a heavily amplified bass clarinet and baritone saxophone) and Helga Arias Parra’s meditative Incipit. Dwelling on memory and our shared histories, Helga’s piece expands from a quote of Pergolesi that is only heard properly in the dying moments of the work.
