Simon Emmerson – Loudspeaker Orchestra Concert
Simon Emmerson presents a concert of contemporary works meditating on contemporary music practice and the malleability of memory and recorded sound.
Emmerson’s forty years of work reflect the changing technology of music; commissions include works for the Smith Quartet, Philip Sheppard (electric cello), Philip Mead (piano) with the Royal Northern College of Music Brass Quintet, Darragh Morgan (violin) and Keynote+ (Jane Chapman and Kate Ryder – harpsichord and piano) and Sond’Ar-te Ensemble (Lisbon). He has also completed purely electroacoustic commissions from the IMEB (Bourges), the GRM (Paris) and the Inventionen Festival (Berlin).
The Loudspeaker Orchestra presents immersive acoustic experiences through programmed concerts of multichannel sound design, sonic art and electroacoustic music. Regular concerts, featuring work by international artists alongside students of Sound Design, take place in and around Greenwich.
This concert is the first to take place in the beautiful church of St Alfege, resting place of Thomas Tallis.
