|Rakhi Singh and Vessel||co-creators|
A collaboration inspired by Janáček’s string quartet Intimate Letters with a memorised performance of the piece followed by the premiere of a new work created by violinist Rakhi Singh and pioneering electronic musician Vessel (Sebastian Gainsborough).
‘The Janáček has a powerful urgency’ says Vessel ‘driven by an obsessive desire that gives it a punk-ish irreverence’.
The combination of acoustic instruments and electronics will scatter sound to all corners of the darkened hall, enveloping us in a contemporary response to a ground-breaking masterpiece.
