UPROAR: Professor Bad Trip (Chapter Arts Centre, Cardiff)
Time & Location
About the Event
Following the success and critical acclaim of its 10x10 programme last autumn, UPROAR returns with a new programme dedicated to new electroacoustic composition. Three new homegrown commissions sit alongside three celebrated international works by pioneering electroacoustic composers. All specialise in the use of electronics to sculpt and manipulate the sound of traditional instruments to create new sonic experiences. Performed by UPROAR’s new music specialist musicians this is an evening of virtuosic work for anyone interested in the new frontiers of classical music and electronic sound.
This new programme commissions three new 8-minute works for large ensemble and live electronics from 3 welsh composers Sarah Lianne Lewis, Bethan Morgan Williams and Andrew Lewis. These works sit alongside those of three international electroacoustic pioneers emerging from the ‘Spectral Movement’ in Paris, Tristan Murail, Fausto Romitelli and Kaija Saariaho.
