Vocal group The Clerks take you on a journey through musical ‘hauntings’ in a new work exploring the way we hear, remember and recall music. Following a traditional melody used by composers across generations, from Bach to Webern, they immerse you in sounds from ancient to contemporary in a series of ‘hallucinations; using modern technologies.
If you are attending the concert, you are invited to download a track in advance:
“Note that there are 8 different versions of this soundtrack. Audience members should choose just one of these to download.”
The concert will last 50 minutes, followed by a post-concert discussion.
