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.
