An evening of electroacoustic music and music for saxophone and computer. We are especially honoured to welcome Pete Stollery and Richard Ingham as they tour the beautiful and delicate 'Dialogue de l'ombre double' by Pierre Boulez for saxophone and computer. In this work from 1985 the soloist 'dialogues' with their 'shadow' as the reflected instrumental sound dances around the loudspeakers surrounding the audience. The incredible Richard Ingham will conclude his performance with a short piece by Pete Stollery. Pete lives and works in Aberdeen and his piece 'from Aberdeen, to hamlets in the Argentine...' for saxophone and computer reflects upon both cities. 'from Aberdeen...' was written for Richard Ingham. Haunting saxophone lines waft over field recordings and other eclectic sounds. After a short break, Pete will play alongside composers from the University of Sheffield Sound Studios. There will be two short sets, each around 40 minutes. The event is expected to end around 9:30pm.
