Feral: Enchantment on the Frontiers of Rewilding | Hollie Harding | LSO
Film, field recordings and violin loudspeakers inspire an exploration of real and imaginary environments in this multimedia concert of works considering the relationship between humans, sounds and ecology.
Descend through the deep sea to the Mariana Trench in Leo Chadburn’s Five Loops for the Bathyscape. Explore the interplay between piano and environmental sound in Joanna Bailie’s Artificial Environments. Experience the twin worlds of violins and birds, brought together in the UK premiere of Carola Bauckholt’s Doppelbelichtung (Double Exposure), and be transported to Alaskan landscapes evoked by the works of eco-political composers Matthew Burtner and John Luther Adams.
Composer and curator Hollie Harding will also present the world premiere of her new work FERAL, with film by Josh Ben-Tovim (Impermanence Dance Theatre). Created in discussion with George Monbiot, author of Feral: rewilding the land, sea, and human life, the piece considers themes of rewilding and our loss of connection with the natural world.

Carola Bauckholt, Leo Chadburn,
