Angharad Davis (violin), Anton Lukoszevieze (cello), Ian Mitchell , David Ryan (clarinets) and Tim Parkinson (melodica & percussion) will perform works by Lawrence Crane, Richard Emsley, Joan key, Tim Parkinson, Markus Trunk
This concert takes place in the context of an exhibition of paintings by Yvonne Lammerich and Joan Key, curated by Sotiris Kyriacou. Music, or reference to compositional notation, is used as a resource in works by both these artists to suggest the fragile or destabilised presence of ‘incident’. The relation of visual and musical forms is understood to be a recurrent theme of abstract painting. However, while seeming commonplace and apparent, this comparison remains undemonstrable; it is this indeterminate relation that gives impetus to invention and experiment.
Some of the works in the concert result from Key’s collaborations/exchanges with Richard Emsley and Anton Lukoszevieze over the last decade, but the selection of the programme generally presents a strand of contemporary British composition that pursues experimentation in notation, instrumentation and approach to performance where visual concepts offer productive metaphors.
