Summerhall, Summerhall Place, Edinburgh EH9 1PL

Michael Edwards is an Edinburgh-based composer, performer, and software developer. For this concert he presents 'hyperboles', a series of ​quiet, meditative ​pieces that allow flautist Anne La Berge to tweak the algorithmic parameters that are used to generate the work's score.

This open invitation enables the musician to get involved in the compositional process. Anne delicately spins microtonal textures and a wholly unique array of powerfully ​communicative flute effects, all combined with ​extensive ​electronic processing.

Cryptic Nights | Articulations

Articulations

Thursday 7th May 2015, 8pm. £8|£5
CCA, 350 Sauchiehall Street, Glasgow G2 3JD

Artist and musician Craig Ritchie Allan (Numbercult) orchestrates a synchronized ballet of geometry and sound. Inspired by the work of Kandinsky, Fischinger, Stockhausen and Xenakis, Ritchie Allan uses bespoke generative real time animation to compose and conduct with colour.

“Lose yourself for a few minutes in the vibrating mathemagical lands of Numbercult, audiovisual immersions in which sound and geometry fuse in a strange, abstract dance.”

Articulations is a captivating performance in which music and visual art are truly united; a novel and engaging experience that saturates the senses and evokes a synaesthetic spectrum of emotion.
