Wednesday 24th February 2010
Philip Jeck
Time: 20:00
Venue: Hall One

An Ark for the Listener, a new work inspired by Gerard Manley Hopkins’ poem The Wreck Of The Deutschland.

"An aspiration in answer to an inspiration,
out of music shaped by all the sea has claimed,
as is the inevitable shipwreck of our existence.
Salvaged out of vinyl, by way of ear, hand and electricity."

"And I have asked to be... out of the swing of the sea." (G M Hopkins)


Thursday 25 February
Time: 20:00
Venue: Hall One
Hauschka with Hildur Guðnadóttir

Haushka is the alias of Dusseldorf keyboardist Volker Bertelman. His critically-acclaimed albums on the 130701 imprint evince a playfully accessible approach to the often austere realm of the prepared piano. Haushka is joined tonight by gifted Icelandic cellist Hildur Guðnadóttir for a major new, aquatically-themed commission.


Saturday 27 February
Hildur Guðnadóttir
Time: 19:00
Venue: Hall One

Icelandic cellist Hildur Guðnadóttir has collaborated with the likes of Throbbing Gristle, Múm and Haushka. She released her debut solo album in 2007. An electronic-tinged follow-up, Without Sinking, appeared in 2009 on the Touch label.
