Manchester’s Distractfold Ensemble will be working with world renowned improvisers Lori Freedman + Mick Beck over a period of three days at the International Anthony Burgess Foundation.
They will be exploring compositional possibilities in sound, rhythm, structure and notation, with the work being organised in a shorthand “sketch” score.
The outcome of this collaboration will be performed at the Burgess Foundation on the 25 November 2018.
Manchester-based ensemble Distractfold (pictured) is a group of performers, composers and curators all acting out of shared love, passion and interest in the music and culture of our times. Coming from different continents, backgrounds and having received a diverse education, together they create a nexus of ideas and influences which all contribute towards the ensemble’s unique voice and identity. They perform acoustic, mixed and electroacoustic music of their peers, alongside music of the more established composers with whom they have formed close collaborations and friendships.
