The JdP’s LHN Series presents three concerts curated by Nicholas Moroz (St Hilda’s), in partnership with the London based new music group Explore Ensemble, focussing on works with live electronics. This first edition sees Explore Ensemble present the music of Patricia Alessandrini, whose new work ‘Tracer la lune d’un doigt’ involves robotics, microprocessors, and transducers. This comes alongside the virtuosic music of Steven Daverson and Enno Poppe, plus an early spectral work by Fausto Romitelli.

Enno Poppe - Gelöschte Lieder
Steven Daverson - Firelife
Patricia Alessandrini - Tracer la lune d’un doigt
Fausto Romitelli - La sabbia del tempo

Liveness, Hybridity and Noise is a new series of talks, concerts and workshops convened by Professor Martyn Harry focusing on experimentalism and contemporary classical music, with most events live-streamed by the JdP. Three times a term invited composers will give lectures at the JdP, St Hilda’s College on a range of topics pertaining to composition, creative collaboration and live electronics that will provide the basis for a vibrant scholarly and interdisciplinary dialogue between composers, performers, academics and audiences.

Composer Talk by Patricia Alessandrini at 6pm with free refreshments served at 5.15pm

All our LHN events will be livestreamed for free on our website.
