Mark Knoop presents new works which each take existing musical material as their starting point. From de la Cour (external link)’s cut-up techniques, through Beaudoin (external link)’s microtiming, to Finnissy (external link)’s Brahms-style choral preludes based on Norwegian and American folk songs, each work proposes an intriguing method of negotiating with the past. Tickets available on the door, or book here (external link).
