This concert, curated by composer Oliver Leith, draws inspiration from a grainy film of the Deller Consort singing English madrigals around a dining table; seemingly without audience; pure joy. Here, EXAUDI and James Weeks do the same, performing recent and ancient music with unspoiled and irreverent curiosity. Superimposing New England Psalms, attempting musical illusions, affecting unhinged vibrato on Dowland and melting cowboy songs.
Part of a composer focus on Oliver Leith (see also Ruisi Quartet, The Big House 15 Feb).
This event will last for one hour, with no interval.
