Five pieces from the full work for Soprano and Baritone, Choir and Chamber Orchestra
In Brightside a poem, written to a pre-prepared scenario, was interpreted using music, song, dialogue and movement. Synthesising these so that no one form dominates another, Brightside develops themes of blind optimism, obstructive cynicism and misguided treachery. This work was originally performed by Lumiere and Son Theatre Company London.
The published score is a re-orchestration of the original score that was performed as an electro-acoustic piece, disseminated through an immersive quadraphonic system. This re-orchestration is ideally suited to an acoustic concert presentational format and works well in accompanying a solo or small ensemble dance component.
This edition produced 2015.
