Performers: Antoine Beuger, Angharad Davies, Sarah Hughes, Tim Parkinson, Michael Pisaro, David Stent, Carol Watts and Manfred Werder.

As part of Cut & Splice: Grúndelweiser, POLYply presents an evening of Wandelweiser works grounded in poetic texts.

Since its inception in 1992, the Wandelweiser composer collective has created an increasingly influential body of work characterised by its great beauty, economy and focus. International in membership and outlook, the collective includes some of the most striking and individual composers working today. Taking the music and aesthetics of Cage, Feldman and Christian Wolff as starting points, the Wandelweiser composers share an interest in the exploration of compositional process and a common concern for silence and duration.

In recent years, several Wandelweiser composers have taken the text-score innovations of the 60s and 70s in new directions, using poems to guide musical performance in various intriguing ways. In this concert several of these works will performed by an ensemble led by composer Tim Parkinson and featuring some of the UK's most experienced interpreters of the collective’s music. The evening begins with a panel discussion led by Will Montgomery and featuring the composers Antoine Beuger, Michael Pisaro and Manfred Werder.

This event, which kicks off the annual Cut & Splice festival, is the first in a series of POLYprojects – one-off events growing out of Royal Holloway's monthly POLYply poetry and performances series, which is hosted by the Centre for Creative Collaboration in Kings Cross, London.

Poetry as Score is programmed by Will Montgomery and Tim Parkinson. Please not that, although this is a free event, space is limited at the venue so you should arrive in good time to avoid disappointment.

WORD EVENT: a verbal notation symposium
Bath Spa University, UK

1.15 Lunchtime Concert - Angharad Davies, John Lely, Tim Parkinson, James Saunders

The Centre for Musical Research at Bath Spa University is holding a
one-day symposium on verbal notation, an approach to scoring that uses the
written word, as opposed to symbols, to convey information to whoever
chooses to interpret it. Verbal notation has been adopted and developed in
the field commonly referred to as experimental music, as well as related
areas of arts practice involving performance or object making.

The location will be Bath Spa University's Corsham Court campus, situated between
Bath and Chippenham.

The symposium follows a two-year AHRC-funded research project resulting in
a book on verbal notation, to be published by Continuum in late 2011.
