Constructs [Loudspeaker Orchestra Concert Series]
Celebrating the role of women in contemporary electronic music, this concert of works for IKO loudspeaker features new compositions from four female composers: Brona Martin, Emma Margetson, Angela McArthur and Nikki Sheth.
Come and hear works reconstructing, recontextualizing and re-presenting environments through the unique IKO loudspeaker instrument in the iconic musical church of St Alfege Church, Greenwich.
About IKO Loudspeaker: Generating immersive 3D soundfields, the IKO uses an array of twenty speakers to project Higher Order Ambisonic sound spaces. Projecting outwards, the IKO enables genuinely sculptural compositional possibilities, embracing and seamlessly integrating room acoustics into the constructed sound space. In so doing sound and space merge to create shifting planes of rhythms, frequencies and intensities.
Our 2021/22 concert season celebrates the diverse work of composers and artists working with recorded sound. Featuring lesser heard works from Eastern Europe, audiovisual collaboration with a leading UK museum, novel spatial audio works composed for the IKO by a group of women composers, and a showcase of Black and South Asian artists as part of our AHRC funded ‘Exploring Cultural Diversity in Experimental Sound’ project.
