!THIS SUNDAY (25th March)!
Scottish Music Centre Composition Marathon at Glasgow Concert Halls’ MINIMAL EXTREME
To mark world renowned experimental music collective Bang on a Can’s 25th Anniversary appearances at MINIMAL EXTREME, the Scottish Music Centre has awarded ten Scottish composers the chance to collaborate with five Scottish ensembles and première their work in front of a live MINIMAL EXTREME audience.
Inspired by Bang on a Can’s iconic performance festivals, the Scottish Music Centre has launched a Composition Marathon whereby the ten Scottish composers – Chris Hutchings, Claire McCue, Derek Ball, Eve Harrison, Graeme Ronald, Julien Lonchamp, Kevan O’Reilly, Peter MacCalman, Kim Moore and Matthew Whiteside – will work with one of five of Scotland’s top chamber ensembles – Daniel’s Beard, Ensemble Thing, Peter Gregson with Keith Beattie, Live Music Now’s Flercussion and Pure Brass – to create and perform new works to a live MINIMAL EXTREME audience at the Old Fruitmarket.
The instrumental groupings will only be revealed at the start of the Marathon at 9am on Saturday 24th March. Following an intense twelve-hour creative period and five hours of rehearsals, the project will culminate in a final performance, featuring ten world premières at 3pm on Sunday 25th March.
