with the Juxtavoices Anti-choir
Saturday 9th November 7.30 pm
Juxtavoices is an ‘anti-choir’ of about twenty-five voices whose repertoire includes members' own compositions and arrangements of modernist poems and found texts. The scores provide a structure, but elements of improvisation shape the details so that no two performances will ever be the same. Poetry is sound allied to meaning, and a multi-voice ensemble offers a fascinating way to hear this. Directed by Martin Archer and Alan Halsey, Juxtavoices uniquely combines the outer reaches of improvised music and innovative poetry.
