Following recent forays into performative and intermedial work, Plus Minus returns to its roots with a programme of instrumental music with electronics. Four of the most refined and distinctive voices in contemporary music will be featured: Cassandra Miller, Davíð Brynjar Franzson, and City composers Newton Armstrong and Georgia Rodgers. Each of these composers is concerned, albeit in different ways, with the fundaments of the compositional act and the manner in which sonic materials can be contextualised, processed, layered and transcribed.

City University Performance Space
St John Street, London EC1V 4PB

This concert will feature the work of six emerging UK-based composers. The programme will serve as a platform for the genuinely broad spectrum of compositional approaches present in today’s new music scene, from the conceptual, performative and intermedial, to work driven by sonic exploration and the re-imagining of traditional musical materials.

This concert has been made possible by the generous support of the Hinrichsen Foundation.
