Acoustic Triangle 3 Dimensions presents fourteen performances of major new works composed specifically for performance in some of England's most awe-inspiring spaces. The acclaimed trio, joined by six world-class string players, the Sacconi Strings, will tour cathedrals and abbeys across the country in a joyful celebration of sound and magnificent architecture. Award-winning composers Tim Garland and Gwilym Simcock have written new works which are individually 'choreographed' for each building in order to create a series of unique performances. The nine players will be placed all around the audience, even above, creating an acoustic three-dimensional soundscape that allows the music to surprise, echo and develop in extraordinary ways.
3 Dimensions will be released as a CD on the Audio-B label to coincide with the tour.
Founded on a love of modern classical music, improvisation, and a passion for natural, un-amplified sound, leading bassist Malcolm Creese's trio, Acoustic Triangle, successfully bridges the boundaries between the styles. Together these three artists are creating some of the most compelling and accomplished music around today. The trio has collaborated with the choir of Westminster Abbey, Northern Sinfonia, the BBC Concert Orchestra, Kenny Wheeler, Gerard Presencer and Liane Carroll.
Wednesday, June 25, at Exeter Cathedral as part of the Exeter Summer Festival. For more information about this great experience, ring (01392) 493493.
