VOX:5

Phaedra Ensemble - Vox 5
The Phaedra Ensemble is presenting VOX:5 on 3 May 2018, the next concert in its series VOX: Exploring the human voice through technology, tradition and experimentation

Performing at Juju's bar at the Old Truman Brewery, London, the concert will feature a collaboration with Tim Dickinson (narrator) and Marta Masiero (dancer/performer). Music includes John Moran's The Little Retarded Boy, taken from ‘Everyday Newt Burnham’, Vitalija Glovackyke's new work for viola, cello, handmade electronics and lights, Meredith Monk's String Songs, David Lang's Music for gracious living and John Uren's her own dying moments.

A protege of composer Philip Glass, John Moran's works use such specific interaction between sound and movement that they have sometimes been categorized as dance. Vitalija Glovackyte creates music bringing together second-hand analogue machines, conventional/home-made instruments and lo-fi visuals. David Lang is best known for The Little Match Girl Passion, based on Hans Christian Andersen's fable "The Little Match Girl" and inspired by Bach's St. Matthew Passion. John Uren writes loosely-definable music ranging from works for the orchestra to experiments with conversation-cut-ups and ambient noise, often characterised by the blending of acoustic and electronic elements into a subtle, understated and fragile palette.
