fragments of paper with musical notation hang from a lighting rig in a concert hall


Disruptions: Man in Regent Street is a new work for soprano, paper and electronics created by Jonathan Higgins and Mimi Doulton. It explores how the destruction of a musical score can be used during a performance to generate and transform musical material, inspired by discussions around the environment and reuse. The text is a commentary on climate change and the paradox between consumerism, economic growth and protecting the planet.

This performance is interspersed with other forms of musical disruption: from the fragmentary Recitations of Georges Aperghis, that blur in and out of comprehensibility; to Jonathan's 'Glitch Turntablism' – an exploration of the noise that can be generated from hacking CD players; and the world premiere of Brazilian composer Cecilia Muylaert's ee cummings settings.

This concert will last 70 minutes and social-distancing will be observed.
