Women of Perfect Ambience
Elizabeth Alker introduces music by an exciting new generation of composers and performers who are breaking free of the constraints of practice rooms and concert halls.
If girls really do rule the world then they especially rule the quiet, contemplative, strange and beautiful corners of it. Elizabeth introduces Unclassified music by an all female line-up of composers daring to plough their own unique furrow. Hear Hannah Peel's journey to space transformed into a slow dance by Hinako Omori, experience the weather-beaten west coast of Scotland through the organ music of Claire M Singer; Lara Sarkissian gives ideas of memory and recognition a different beat and the sound worlds of Bruckner and Bjork collide in the music of Lucy Claire. All that plus an exclusive sneak preview of Julia Kent's forthcoming album and brand new music from Sophia Jani and Anna Meredith.
