Highlights from the UK Premiere performance of Game Boy by Jagoda Szmytka at HCMF2015. Performed by Goska Isphording.
We had a wonderful time performing on the opening night of the 2015 Huddersfield Contemporary Music Festival. Ian Faragher and Nigel Bryant – of Sonic Imperfections – discussed their experiences of the weekend (including our concert) on Resonance Extra:
Huddersfield’s Artistic Director Graham McKenzie had this to say:
Date: Friday 20th November
Venue: Blending Shed at Bates Mill, Huddersfield
We are absolutely thrilled to make our HCMF debut with the wild and bizarre worlds of Jagoda Szmytka, Samantha Fernando & Lee Hyla. The concert includes UK premieres of Szmytka’s Game Boy and Empty Music, along with Hyla’s 30-minute retrospective My Life on the Plains. Samantha has created a new version of her piece Positive/Negative Space especially for this concert. All of the music is deeply personal & characterful, and the concert will be ‘guided’ by an audio tour created by Szmytka especially for the night.
