Manchester Collective – Voice of the Whale

Molly Joyce – High and Low
Alex Groves – Curved Form (St Endellion) – World Premiere
Andrew Hamilton – In Beautiful May
George Crumb – Vox Balaenae

“In the dark and lonely depths of the Pacific Ocean, the whales are singing. Listen closely. Can you hear them?”

In their first major touring project of the year, Manchester Collective bring together a strange and unsettling set of otherworldly music. Molly Joyce’s ecstatic High and Low opens the programme –solo piano presented as a celestial, supercharged, percussive force of nature. Curved Form (St Endellion) by Alex Groves, performed live for the first time, conjures up a meditative seascape for live electronics and strings. Listeners are submerged in cascading tides and layered textures, contrasting sharply with Andrew Hamilton’s frenetic In Beautiful May. In the end though, it’s back to the sea. Down, down, down. The night finishes with George Crumb’s enigmatic Vox Balaenae, performed on instruments that are amplified and modified. Music from another world.

Line-up: violin, cello, flute, piano, and live electronics

This performance will last approximately 60 minutes.
