THE POUND HOSTS WORLD PREMIERE FROM COMPOSER-IN-RESIDNECE NICHOLAS PETERS
POSTED: 30/10/2015 11:00:59
Don't miss the world premiere of Scantlebury (for soprano and tape) by composer-in-residence Nicholas Peters.

Voice(s) Friday 6 November, 7.30pm

International contemporary music soloist Juliet Fraser unveils a new programme for soprano and tape co-curated with Nicholas Peters, composer-in-residence at The Pound arts centre, Corsham.

World premieres from Nicholas and Catherine Kontz, extant works by Scott Mc Laughlin and Christopher Fox, and Morton Feldman’s extraordinary Three Voices explore, extend and distort the multiple voices of a single performer.

Nicholas composed Scantlebury in close collaboration with the renowned soprano Juliet Fraser at The Pound over recent months and commented:

"The setting for Scantlebury is in the home, with Juliet sat at a table with a radio cassette recorder that she has used all of her life, to regularly record an audio-diary. The constant re-use of the same few tapes has led to new entries being irregularly recorded over old ones, resulting in a ‘broken’ audio history whereby memories intersect one another to form new 'false' memories. A complex relationship between Juliet and the tape machine explores the question of whether she is trapped inside these memories or if in fact she can move beyond them? Come along on Friday 6 November 2015 to find out”.

The Pound arts centre said: “It’s fantastic that we are able to support Nicholas as composer-in-residence, in a continued capacity, as well as premiering his latest work in a performance space right where he created much of it. We look forward to continuing his residency and exploring future, creative opportunities with him”.

On the opportunity to create new work at The Pound, Nicholas added: “This is such an amazing opportunity for me, The Pound have supported me in creating this exciting new programme, and without them it just wouldn’t have been possible. I’m very excited about it!”

Tickets for Voice(s) on Friday 6 November are £10 (£9 concessions), £5 students. Call the box office on 01249 701628 or book online at poundarts.org.uk
