Sounds of Now launch with Elaine Mitchener and Apartment House
Sounds of Now is a platform for musicians who are creating and exploring some of the most exciting artistic ideas today, nurturing talent, inspiring new thinking and provoking debate. This new series from Music in the Round is your invitation to engage and connect with music in new ways.
Elaine Mitchener and Apartment House launch the series with a programme that spans the jazz of Charles Mingus to interpretations of artwork by Louise Bourgeois.
Fusing music, theatre, dance and art, Mitchener is an enthralling performer who manipulates her voice to evoke an incredible range of characters and emotions. She has collaborated with leading composers such as George Lewis and Tansy Davies and artists Christian Marclay and Marina Abramović.
