The UnHeard Ensemble now: wind septet plus electric guitar, double bass and electronics; conducted by Xinjie Yang and directed by the versatile and multi-talented Omer Shteinhart. The performers will be the fantastic Festivo Winds, plus contemporary clarinettists/saxophonists Johanna Leung and Poppy Philligreen, double bassist Thomas Betts, and electric guitarist Billy Lancaster. Visionary young artist Chrysanthi Tsichti will contribute her beautifully monstrous portraiture to create bespoke visuals for the concert.
This showcase is built and inspired by musical works which premiered online via our black mirrors during the 2020/21 lockdowns, but which have not yet reached the stage. Many of these pieces began as music videos. How much music is lying dormant like this, waiting to be unlocked in public performance?
The Liverpool Philharmonic Music Room is the ideal venue to realise this event: large enough and fitted with all the multimedia resources needed for the scale of this production, yet still intimate and laid out perfectly for a rich audio-visual experience.
Witness each unique work brought to life in front of an audience, releasing the full energy and inspiration of the composers (including Athanasia Kontou, Simon Knighton, Robert Laidlow, Nate Chivers, Tywi JH Roberts; plus guests Manoli Moriaty and Matt Brown).
