The Emerald Ensemble featuring Elektrodome
Part of ElektroStatic – The Emerald Ensemble’s New Music Series
Wednesday 7th May,
Colston Hall Bar, Bristol,
£8, £5 (concessions, under 26s)
Players from the Emerald Ensemble will be joined by interactive technology pioneers ‘Elektrodome’ and their unique Soundbeam equipment. In award-winning composer Martin Kiszko’s newly composed piece, the themes of spying and covert surveillance rendezvous with music in a work that explores secret messaging, bugging, phone tapping, pursuit and chase. ‘Vi Spy’ is scored for Violin and Soundbeam – an ultrasonic device that enables a performer’s movements to trigger sound and image.
Shubunkin (Stewart Freeland) performs music that is constantly evolving due to the way that it is composed and performed through live interaction with electronic devices. Using Soundbeam movement sensors to play notes, melodies, manipulate and trigger samples. Shubunkin frees himself from the desk and laptop, developing an individual act demonstrating how a digital artist is able to engage physically with the music creating a live element to the performance.
This concert is part of Colston Hall’s ElektroStatic bar series – a series of four concerts featuring Bristol’s premier professional chamber group The Emerald Ensemble. In each concert, players collaborate with pioneering artists at the cutting edge of musical innovation. Come along to encounter unique sonic and visual experiences, world premieres and rarely heard classics of the avant-garde.
