Birmingham’s SOUNDkitchen and BEAST (Birmingham Electro-Acoustic Sound Theatre) are teaming up to bring two nights of sonic and musical delights to the University of Birmingham’s purpose-built multi-channel space, the BEASTdome.
Iceland’s Thor Magnusson brings his Threnoscope, a live generative piece of immersive spectral music, while US composer Sam Pluta will present new work for instruments and electronics with his Wet Ink Ensemble. Eliot Bates and Angela Da Ponte’s performances will be inspired by the music of Turkey and the Azores, respectively, while Manfredi Clemente will play work based on improvised piano and no-input mixer. The trio of Sarah Hughes, Kostis Kilymis, and Samuel Rodgers will close the first night, while for the second Chris Herbert and Nicholas Bullen will reprise their wonderful collaboration that premiéred at SOUNDkitchen in November.
