Following his joint creation of a surround-sound recording with We Spoke last year, Fritz Hauser is composing a new, 40-minute piece for the ensemble. Meanwhile, Mica Levi’s compositions, performed by Eliza McCarthy, which include the original soundtrack for Jonathan glazer’s Under the Skin, provide a thoughtful contrast with Hauser’s: both work with complex soundscapes, Levi within tonal a context and Hauser working with raw percussive sounds. The many years of collaboration between We Spoke and Hauser on the one hand, and Levi and Mccarthy on the other brings strong energy to the performance.
