Phot of the Juxtavoices choir

The second choir are Juxtavoices, 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.

“Precisely what art should be: challenging, reflective and dislocating.
Voices struggling to articulate thought and emotion, whispered and screamed and seduced
and accosted from nowhere”'
(Norman Paul Warwick).
