Keele Concerts: lovemusic: Flute, Clarinet and Voice

lovemusic is a free collective of artists who, through their shared passion of music, are actively engaged in promoting and sharing their vision of contemporary performance arts.

The new music collective lovemusic develop and present innovative programmes which are not restricted by genre or a specific instrumental formation but rather explore aesthetic and creative ideas to produce an alternative yet coherent discourse. The collective enjoy exploring all repertoires and their work in direct collaboration with today’s composers completes their programming offering a new and original viewpoint of the present...

This programme is based around a newly commissioned work for flute, clarinet and voice by Jérôme Combier based on a text by Kenneth White, “walking the coast”, inspired by the Scottish coastline. This new piece will be heard alongside works by a selection of French and British composers who have all explored the creative possibilities of this unusual trio. The title Everything Starts Elsewhere references the text by Roberto Juarroz for one of the pieces but also the creative process of transmission: Beginning in the composers mind, evolving into written form, interpreted by performers and reinterpreted by the public. It also makes reference to the itinerant nature of music especially in this programme which mirrors music from both sides of the Channel.
