Each of the featured composers approaches the instruments in a different way, demonstrating the rich versatility of these deep-voiced instruments. The concert includes the first performance of Michael Oliva’s Passacaglia, drawing on Sarah Watts’ and Carla Rees’ research on multiphonics on their respective instruments.

Creative Coding in North East Schools
Very excited about my new AHRC funded project delivering workshops in Sonic Pi to schoolchildren here in North East England! Creative Coding in North East Schools (CCiNES) is about exposing students to the basics of computer programming by engaging their interest in music, whilst simultaneously developing their composition, listening, and performance skills outside traditional acoustic composition approaches. I kicked things off last month with workshops at Argyle House School, King James I Academy and Seaham School of Technology, and will be getting into many more schools over the coming months. Get in touch if you are interested in having this no-cost, high-impact workshop programme at your school!
