Ed McKeon introduces semi-improvised pieces by fORCH, Morla and the Smith Quartet; plus Pwyll ap-Sian's Gwales played by the BBC National Orchestra of Wales.
Does music have to be composed, or can it be made up on the spot? Ed McKeon introduces new works that combine both approaches, recorded at festivals in Huddersfield and Sligo:
Richard Barrett and fORCH: part of fOKT 6
Morla: This May Not Have Happened
Morla and the Smith Quartet
And from the Bangor New Music Festival, a fully-composed orchestral work that travels from Mozart's Requiem to an imagined Utopia:
Pwyll ap-Sian: Gwales
BBC National Orchestra of Wales conducted by Grant Llewellyn.
