At the Next Port of Call
On Saturday September 25 a very special concert took place on the Strumble Head peninsula in Pembrokeshire, Wales, as part of the On Land’s Edge / Ar Ymyl y Tir festival in Fishguard.
At the Next Port of Call (pt2) for trumpet, tuba, natural soundscape and lighthouse was premiered on this magnificent place. A piece in which brass swells, synchronised to the light pattern of Strumble Head lighthouse, echo back from the cliffs and melt together with the natural soundscape. It was magical.
Nordic Affect ensemble play HRAUN
When Halla Steinunn approached me to write a new work for Nordic Affect my thoughts went to these two photographs of volcanic streams from the Fagradalsfjall eruption she made on location a few weeks earlier, posted on social media. Its shapes have been lingering in my mind and for this concert I set out capturing the enigmatic, but brief, life of a lava flow in just a few brush strokes.
HRAUN, the Icelandic word for lava, will be premiered by the fabulous Nordic Affect ensemble in Mengi, Reykjavík, next Saturday, Oct 16. I’m very excited to hear it performed and it would be great to see you there!
