Small Atlas in Manchester

Raise Your Voice @ International Anthony Burgess Foundation flyerEveryone in Manchester should come to the International Anthony Burgess Foundation this Friday evening for what prom­ises to be an ex­citing evening of new music, ran­ging from ex­per­i­mental new works to im­pro­visa­tion and jazz. The pro­gramme in­cludes the UK première of my most re­cent work, Small Atlas by the Raise Your Voice Ensemble’s Jenny Dyson, Jon Guy, Rebecca Lea and Aaron Parker along­side works by Steve Reich, Morton Feldman, Karlheinz Stockhausen and Malcolm Hayes. The evening also fea­tures per­form­ances by good friends Trio Atem — per­forming works by Tom Coult, more Feldman, Ian Vine, Martin Iddon, Harrison Birtwistle, Toru Takemitsu, Georges Aperghis and Michael Mayhew — and fin­ishes with a set from the recently-formed 265 Quartet. Tickets are a bar­gain at £3!
