NEW NOISE – CROSS TALK

THIS PERFORMANCE TOOK PLACE IN 2008 To get a flavour of the music performed by New Noise click here to listen to an extract from Cameron Sinclair's 'The Fly'. JANEY MLLER, OBOE RICHARD HAYNES, BASS CLARINET SARAH NICOLLS, PIANO JOBY BURGESS, PERCUSSION RICHARD BENJAFIELD, PERCUSSION SCOTT WILSON, PERCUSSION MATTHEW FAIRCLOUGH, SOUND DESIGN Iannis XENAKIS Ohko Pedro GÓMEZ-EGAÑA Clark Nova Steve REICH Four Organs Karlheinz STOCKHAUSEN Kreuzspiel Martin PARKER New work (world premiere) Donnacha DENNEHY New work (world premiere) Cross Talk features seminal works from three of the most influential composers of the late 20th-century, alongside new work from some of the most exciting young composers working today. In the first half Xenakis’s powerful, West African tinged slice of drumming Ohko and Steve Reich’s minimalist classic Four Organs surround Columbian composer Pedro Gómez-Egaña’s quiet and edgy Clark Nova which mixes music boxes, kitchen bowls, water and breathy oboe noise with lo-fi electronics. Stockhausen’s 1950s’ classic and rarely performed Kreuzspiel is a tribute to the composer who died in December. This is followed by the premiere of specially commissioned works from Edinburgh-based sound artist Martin Parker, best known for his gritty, glitchy, noise-filled computer-led music and the artistic director of Dublin’s Crash Ensemble, Donnacha Dennehy.
