Spectral Electric

City Gallery Wellington, Wellington

Music from the frontiers of sound & technology

The works on this programme share a fascination with the materiality of sound, by revealing its inner structures in a series of meditative dronescapes that will fill the resonant spaces of City Gallery Wellington. Composers such as Kaija Saariaho, Salvatore Sciarrino, Luigi Ceccarelli and Annea Lockwood all provide deep and enveloping listening experiences.

Also featured is the world premiere of a new concerto for throatsinger, ensemble and live electronics by Michael Norris, with soloist Wellington-based throatsinger and improviser, Jonny Marks.
