21 Aug 2020 'Home From Afar' (2020 Glanville-Hicks Commission) by Belle Chen
For her Peggy Glanville-Hicks commission, UK-based pianist and composer Belle Chen drew inspiration from her extensive memory bank of experiences growing up in Australia, as well as a collection of field recordings from over the years. The work is a hybrid of performance, composition, and improvisation, also including some music by Peter Sculthorpe. 'The journey traverses through multiple sound worlds and instruments: from sound art, electronics, classical piano, experimental extended techniques.. with hints of neo-classical and jazz-influenced language', she describes her work.
Home From Afar will premiere on Belle Chen's YouTube channel on Friday 21 August 2020 at 1pm London BST (10 pm AEST).
