ANGHARAD DAVIES + TIM PARKINSON + BENEDICT DREW

DAY 3 of ANGHARAD DAVIES – THREE-DAY RESIDENCY

Delighted to present a three-day residency curated by London-based, Welsh violinist, Angharad Davies, as a result of the OTO Projects UK Artists Residency Fund. A phenomenal improviser, Angaharad has also amassed a considerable body of work within the fields of composition and performance. Her approach to sound involves attentive listening and exploring beyond the sonic confines of her instrument, her classical training and performance expectation.

This residency is one of three at OTO for UK-based artists/groups at a vital point in their creative development, thanks to the support of Jerwood Charitable Foundation.

840

840’s next concert features Eos Ensemble performing music for clarinet, violin and piano by Eva-Maria Houben, Makiko Nishikaze, Tim Parkinson and the Armenian priest Komitas, alongside new pieces by Paul Evernden, James Luff and Alex Nikiporenko.

If there is something that unites the composers featured in our concert, it is an attitude of presenting sounds as sounds, directly and unadorned. Each piece embodies the practice of a unique creative artist, communicating a strong and clear sense of identity without reference to anything extra-musical.

Music of sparse and delicate intensity from Eva-Maria Houben and Makiko Nishikaze, drawing attention to the details of sounds in idiosyncratic ways, features alongside the elegant, Armenian folk-influenced pieces by Komitas, and the unique experimentalism of Tim Parkinson. The concert will also present new works that explore the reduction of a romantic waltz idiom to a rigid construct, the tension between repetitive parts and an ever-changing whole (and vice versa), as well as the versatility of the bass clarinet.

The concert will take place at the St James' Church, Prebend Street, Islington, N1 8PF on Friday 22 February at 7:30pm.

Tickets can be purchased online for £8 or on the door for £10.

Saturday 9 February, 2.00 – 5.00pm

Over the duration of a week, the composer Laurence Crane will lead experimental music workshops, with students from Guildhall School of Music and Drama, rehearsing scores by composers whose music has influenced Beatrice Gibson's work and share affinities with the two new films.

Composers will include John Cage, Cornelius Cardew, Mary Jane Leach, Amber Priestley, John Lely, Christian Wolff, Pauline Oliveros and Tim Parkinson. Gallery visitors are welcome to observe rehearsals and on Wednesday 6 February, the cellist Anton Lukoszevieve will participate in the workshop.
An informal performance will take place in the gallery at the end of each day.

Part of a programme of events hosted by composer, Laurence Crane.

Laurence Crane is closely associated with the ensemble Apartment House, who have given over 40 performances of his works. Compositions written for Apartment House include John White in Berlin, which is featured on the soundtrack of Beatrice Gibson's new film I Hope I'm Loud When I'm Dead. In the past five years there have been four CDs released of his music; by Apartment House, and by the ensembles Cikada and Asamisimasa, both from Norway, and by the Ives Ensemble, from the Netherlands. His piece Octet, composed for Plus-Minus Ensemble, was shortlisted for the 2009 Royal Philharmonic Society Music Awards, in the Chamber-Scale Composition category, and in 2017 he was a recipient of a Paul Hamlyn Foundation Award. He is currently a Professor of Composition at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama.

Michael Parsons: 80th Birthday Concert

Michael Parsons: 80th Birthday Concert

A tribute concert to composer Michael Parsons, featuring selections from his extensive catalogue of works for solo piano and two pianos. A key figure in English experimental music during the 1960s, Parsons was a co-founder of the legendary Scratch Orchestra, with Cornelius Cardew and Howard Skempton.

Since then, he has been active as a teacher, writer and concert programmer, alongside his career as a composer of distinctive vocal and instrumental music, often concerned with systems and formal clarity.

The performers will be fellow pianist-composers Makiko Nishikaze and Tim Parkinson, whose own works share a similar spirit of fresh and clear investigation.

Programme:

  • Michael Parsons, Rhythm Studies I for 2 pianos (1971)
  • Michael Parsons, Two Canons for piano duet (1979-80)
  • Michael Parsons, Oblique Pieces 11, 12, 13, 15, 17
  • Makiko Nishikaze, new work for 2 pianos
  • Tim Parkinson, untitled two pianos (1999)
