Event details

Exploring lyrics, sonorities and cultural loading of songs for soprano, saxophone, keyboards and drums/percussion

We Spoke: Song brings together three instrumentalists and renowned soprano Juliet Fraser to form a new music band that explores the cultural heritage of song.

They begin with a medley (!) of Swiss song, loving and critical in equal measure. Next, the latest volume of Shlomowitz's Popular Contexts, also a premiere, which patterns and transforms daily instructions such as Ikea instructions or fitness directions. And finally, a work from Lang's celebrated DW series that explores repetition and its effects on perception in the form of five songs with lyrics by artists such as Bob Dylan and prog-rocker Peter Hammill.

Soprano: Juliet Fraser
Saxophone: Laurent Estoppey
Keyboards: Kerry Yong
Percussions/Drums: Serge Vuille

Free admission.
