Kammer Klang: Phaedra Ensemble, Christopher Redgate, Klara Lewis and Nik Colk Void

Sara Mohr-Pietsch presents Kammer Klang at London's Cafe Oto, featuring a live set from Klara Lewis and Nik Colk Void, and music from Christopher Redgate and Leo Chadburn.

Sara Mohr-Pietsch introduces recordings made at a Kammer Klang event at Cafe Oto in London last month. Phaedra Ensemble open the programme with a pair of works for spoken word and string quartet: John Uren's 'Her Own Dying Moments' is constructed around a recording made by a palliative care doctor in response to the death of David Bowie, while Leo Chadburn's 'The Indistinguishables' catalogues and celebrates the names of moth species sighted in Britain. And following a solo set by oboist Christopher Redgate, we hear the first UK performance by the collaborative duo of electronic musicians Klara Lewis and Nik Colk Void. Also tonight, in the latest instalment of Modern Muses, composer Josephine Stephenson and violinist Fiona Monbet compare notes on the creative process.
