Eliza McCarthy & Jo Wills Breath Box for piano and electronics

Experience the shattering power of John Luther Adams’s Among Red Mountains and Nunataks, works inspired by the landscape of Alaska, alongside Mica Levi’s immersive Slow Dark Green Murky Waterfall and Waves in a mesmerising sequence by contemporary pianist Eliza McCarthy and electronic artist Jo Wills.

In the second half, Jo Wills will join Eliza to perform Breath Box, her piece written in collaboration with Jo, of which she writes: ‘From the peninsula of Brean Down in Somerset, to a small sunlit room in the city, Breath Box represents the expanse and intimacy of familiar and favourite places. Developed during a residency at Snape Maltings, the prerecorded material in Breath Box was made from manipulating the rich palette of sonic possibilities that lurk beneath the piano lid.’

“Eliza McCarthy is a pianist of beguiling poise and style. She is also the muse for many living composers, including Mica Levi, who wrote a series of commanding pieces for her with fantastic titles, such as Slow Dark Green Murky Waterfall. In this special concert she will weave Mica’s pieces with John Luther Adams’s monumental music of the great outdoors, Tukiliit, Nunataks and Among Red Mountains, and share the sounds of Somerset and Suffolk in her collaboration with electronic artist Joe Wills, Breathbox.” Helen Wallace, Programme Director at Kings Place

About Luminate

In this open-ended series we shine a light into the crucible of new music creation today, revealing exhilarating cross-currents in sound and style through boundary-breaking, visceral performances.

From contemporary orchestral composition to shimmering electronic sound worlds, musical expression is becoming less defined by genre, more framed by its emotional and cultural contexts. Luminate taps into this bold, exploratory landscape in a series of shows that will provoke and inspire.

The third season starting January 2020 is brought to you in association with Spitfire Audio.
