Edinburgh-based composer Shiori Usui’s from scratch is a revised version of her 2007 work, based on her experience of eczema and is scored for orchestra, improvised voice/percussion and live-electronics. Chyskyyrai from Siberia, embodies the Sakha character of a menerik woman, one possessed by the spirits, and her vocal style draws on oral epics, folk songs and animal imitation. In this set she performs with K-Space (Tim and Ken Hyder).

After the move to the Grand Hall, Lawrence Dunn’s Ambling, waking is about the everyday struggle to emerge from sleep, but also about ‘waking’, as in mourning. Linda Catlin Smith’s Adagietto pays homage to the slow movements of classical and Baroque orchestral music, their pace “allowing for more complex harmony to be heard”. James Saunders’ World Premiere is typical of his open-form compositions that explore group behaviours and decision making, in this case using memory and mental effort to determine the resulting orchestral sound. Finally, Roscoe Mitchell’s Conversations for soloists and orchestra are based upon transcriptions of works from both of his CDs of the same name.
