From ambiguous start to surprising finish, this fourth program in the 2017 season The Attraction of Opposites sets out to fragment and distort the listener’s experience of slowly waking from sleep, with the focus on changing perceptions of time – at times pulsing and pacy, at others hazy and elusive – with new arrangements of some iconic pieces of Classical music, culminating in a part-minimalist, part-improvisatory soundtrack of four pianos plus electronic and real percussion, a talking clock, and a twilight heroine on a kaleidoscopic ride through states of semi-consciousness, where the stretching of the harmonic rhythm of the final Contrapunctus from J.S.Bach’s Art of Fugue portrays the fluidity of psychological time against the primordial relentlessness of the clock and Time itself.


Program includes:
Steve Reich Clapping Music
Handel (arr.) Zadok the Priest (extract)
Stravinsky Otche Nash’
J.S. Bach arr. W.Swingle Sleepers, awake!
J.S. Bach The Art of Fugue / Contrapunctus XIX
Antony Pitts Anna’s Rapid Eye Movement
