Attack, resonance and decay

Half a tonne of Double Bell and percussive textures. Verity Sharp features new music for a giant bell from Dominic Murcott, virtuosic percussion playing and ancient voices.

Half a tonne of Double Bell and percussive textures, with Verity Sharp.

Attention-grabbing percussion playing from Sō Percussion contrasts with the soft, deep sound of the giant bell which pervades Harmonic Canon, a new work by composer Dominic Murcott.

Verity also samples the latest release by Lau member Kris Drever, features a new recording of piano music by the Japanese composer Toshi Ichiyanagi and plays a track from Liam Byrne, a viola da gamba player who blurs the lines between old and new.

Produced by Freya Hellier.
A Reduced Listening production for BBC Radio 3.
