Composer Guest Series - Hollie Harding

We are delighted to welcome composer Hollie Harding, who will discuss her work Melting, Shifting, Liquid World ahead of the premiere of a new ensemble work at God’s House Tower commissioned and performed by PLAYLIST that evening.

Melting, Shifting, Liquid World was the first composition to incorporate the use of open-ear, bone-conduction headsets alongside live acoustic and amplified instruments to create a multi-layered sonic environment for the audience to move around and within. The project was awarded funding by Arts Council England, PRS Foundation’s Women Make Music, Hinrichsen Foundation and Gemma Classical Music Trust and was written for electric viola and string ensemble. The work was the concluding piece of her Trinity Laban RDP Scholarship funded Creative Practice PhD at Trinity Laban.

Current projects include a Royal Philharmonic Society Composition Prize commission to write a new work for players from the Philharmonia Orchestra for premiere at the Royal Festival Hall (May 2020), and a new participatory immersive piece for CoMA to be performed at Kings Place as a part of Nature Unwrapped (July 2020).

Free admission. All are welcome to attend.
