Deadwood — my new, 8-channel acousmatic work exploring the internal and surface sound worlds of a rotten branch — will premiere on March 1st at the University of Birmingham, during the BEASTdome: Headlong concert in the Bramall Music Building.
The concert will feature pieces by Vinko Globokar, James Opstad, Ray Gibson, Christopher Fox, Scott Wilson and fellow BEAST composers, with virtuoso clarinettist and new music star Heather Roche performing.
The dome venue is accessible on the top floor of the Bramall. Doors close at 7.30pm, and duration will be approximately two hours with a short interval. Refreshments will be available near the ground floor entrance.
Tickets can be purchased here.
I’ll be adding a webpage for Deadwood in the next few days, featuring an excerpt (stereo reduction), programme notes and some technical info.
