Composer in Residence for the Stiftung Kunst und Musik Für Dresden

Dresden Residency: Week 5

This week welcomes the beginning of the Tonlagen Festival for Contemporary Music in Hellerau this week, for which I’ve prepared a performance installation which premieres next Tuesday 19th March. You can find us in the programme here!

‘Pseudo Spiritum’ is a work for instrumentalist and dancer. The title, meaning ‘Pseudo Breath’ is abstract with a little bit of a political tarnish. The piece explores a world polluted beyond it’s ability to naturally sustain life as it previously knew. The creatures are born instead with masks to aid their breathing and gradually acclimatise themselves to this world of broken air.
