Dark Inventions – Firewheel Tour
May 11, 2014 @ 8:00 pm - 9:30 pm£3 – £10
Folk songs and brand new British music weave together in Dark Inventions’ 2014 Firewheel Tour.
Joined by singer, composer and songwriter Stef Conner, the group performs old songs interwoven with music by emerging composers of the contemporary British scene.
Central to the tour is Firewheel, a brand new work from leading British composer Philip Cashian.
The tour features works by four composers with links to the North of England: Stef Conner (RPS Prize 2012); Patrick Jones (Britten Sinfonia OPUS 2014 winner); Christopher Leedham (Sound and Music Composer-Curator 2013); and Martin Scheuregger (British Music Collection composer-in-residence).
Curated in partnership with Sound and Music, the tour takes Dark Inventions to venues across the North of England (8-16 May 2014). The group’s debut EP, Hinterland, is released to coincide with the tour.
Dark Inventions is a young chamber ensemble that seeks to highlight the links between traditionally disparate music. Established by composers Christopher Leedham and Martin Scheuregger, the group focuses on combining music of different periods, curating projects that aim to entertain and inspire audiences whilst introducing some hidden gems from past and present repertoire.
Firewheel was commissioned with financial assistance from Britten-Pears Foundation. Dark Inventions’ Firewheel Tour is presented in partnership with Sound and Music.
