Composer Talk by Joanna Bailie at 6pm Explore Ensemble soloists (Deni Teo: cello, Emmanuelle Fleurot: piano) present a selection of works for instrument with tape by Berlin-based British composer Joanna Bailie. Bailie’s music here explores the interplay between field recordings and live musicians, creating artificial environments within which listeners are invited to re-imagine how sound mediates our everyday world. Similarly concerned with the idea of translation is Peter Ablinger’s ongoing ‘Voices and Piano’ series. Ablinger transcribes recordings of famous figures for the piano according to different resolutions of pitch and rhythm, sometimes matching almost exactly, other times beguilingly dissimilar, to simultaneously reveal and extend our perceptions of speech sounds.
