Digital Music experts at QM have joined forces with the world-renowned London Chamber Orchestra (LCO) for a concert merging contemporary and classical music with science and technology. Inspired by Digital on Friday 17 May takes place at London’s newest concert venue, Cadogan Hall in Chelsea, in the hour (6-7pm) before the LCO performs a more traditional all-Beethoven programme.
Five compositions have been created in workshops between QM’s world-leading Centre for Digital Music (C4DM) and the LCO and will receive their world premieres at the event - the culmination of the orchestra’s New Explore series. All pieces have been written specifically for the LCO and developed using cutting-edge technology created by QM’s digital music research group.
The performance celebrates the LCO’s residency at QM, and sees the distinguished orchestra and C4DM forge new connections between new young composers, performers, and listeners through state-of-the-art technologies.
Entry to the concert is free but must be booked here: http://www.lco.co.uk/education/lco-new/concert-performance.
There is very limited Box Office availability for tickets for the LCO Beethoven concert. Anyone wishing to attend should contact the Orchestra directly at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Tickets are priced at £15, £22 and £28.
Inspired by Digital is supported by the Centre for Public Engagement and by C4DM’s Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council Platform Grant.
A workshop day on Tuesday 23 April was open to the public, staff and students, to watch the composition process as it happened. Pictures can be viewed on the London Chamber Orchestra’s website: http://www.lco.co.uk/education/lco-new/workshop-day/photo-gallery.
