Words, words, words: new dots' Lexcon with The Hermes Experiment

Lexicon - new dots
The exciting people at New Dots are back with a linguistic based programme, Lexicon. Taking place at the Crypt on the Green, Clerkenwell, EC1R 0EA on Wednesday 16 November 2016, the concert features music by a selection of promising young composers and writers, performed by The Hermes Experiment (Heloise Werner, soprano Oliver Pashley, clarinet Anne Denholm, harp Marianne Schofield, double bass).

We are promised the incorporation of Japanese poetry and Utai chant and the musicality of spoken Chinese into Western musical writing, with works by Josephine Stephenson, Andrew Thomas, and Jia Chai (these latter two through recent call for works). Composer Freya Waley-Cohen and poet Octavia Bright explore female sexuality in a new song cycle, We Phoenician Sailors, and there will be improvisations by the poet Ali Lewis, and music be Meredith Monk,
