Gordon’s monolithic work Rushes is an hour-long wall of sound made up of pulsating, hypnotic, and slowly shifting patterns, performed by an instrumental ensemble of seven bassoons.
The audience is flanked on each side by the musicians of the LCO, with their focus directed to reactive visuals that examine the limits of perception and the way the mind receives and perceives sensory information.
Claire M Singer is a composer, producer and performer whose debut album for organ, cello and electronics was dubbed ‘genuinely magical’ by The Quietus.
Tonight Singer, known for her experimental approach to the organ, performs gleann ciùin with the LCO.
The piece was commissioned and first performed by the orchestra in the 2019 New Music Biennial.
