Making it up, this moment of June
Performance and score
Commissioned by Radar, LU Arts, 2018
A new performance score developed as part of (re)composition, a set of commissions drawing on research by Dr Allan Watson in Loughborough University’s Department of Geography. His work explores the connections between the social and economic relations fostered by music; musical infrastructures; and working conditions in the music industry. The project investigated forms and relations of listening that (re)produce and are (re)produced by personal and public places, thinking through non-musical, musical and technological listening. I brought together an ensemble of Loughborough musicians to explore ways to trace boundaries of music, place and registers of listening in a rehearsal and recording process. The public were invited to a recording session of the first performance of the score.
The printed score, production of which is funded by the Hinrichsen Foundation will be published in March 2019.
