SoundSCAPE Festival: Ann Cleare presents on her music

Thu 12 Jul 2018 - 11:00

Conservatorio Bruno Maderna Lecture Theatre

Ann Cleare, Irish Artist-in-Residence, gives a presentation on her music, focusing on her cycle of works entitled eyam, with excerpts performed by Hila Zamir (clarinet) and Lisa Cella (flute). 
eyam i-v area series of five attacca pieces composed by Ann Cleare from 2008 to 2017spanning over two hours of music, based around clarinet and flute writing in various solo, ensemble, electronic and orchestral settings. Eyam is a small village in Derbyshire, England. The village is best known for being the “plague village” that chose to isolate itself when the plague was discovered there in August 1665, rather than let the infection spread. In theyam cycle, the village stands as a metaphor for ideas of isolation and infiltration that are sonically explored across the pieces. This presentation will have live performances from Hila Zamir and Lisa Cella.
