26th of April 2018

M.I.O. MERSEYSIDE IMPROVISERS Orchestra & composer, Howard Skempton

@ Capstone Theatre, Liverpool

The Merseyside Improvisers Orchestra's list of collaborations continues!
This next one features the composer Howard Skempton. Howard was one of the founders of The Scratch Orchestra and a pivotal figure in English experimental music from the 60s. For this new collaboration, Howard will be playing with the orchestra and premiere a new piece especially commissioned by us for the occasion.
Howard Skempton was born in Chester in 1947, and has worked as a composer, accordionist, and music publisher. He studied in London with Cornelius Cardew from 1967, which helped Skempton to discover a musical language of great simplicity. Since then he has continued to write undeflected by compositional trends, producing a corpus of more than 300 works - many pieces being miniatures for solo piano or accordion. Skempton calls these pieces "the central nervous system" of his work.
Skempton's catalogue of works is also as diverse as it is long, ranging from pieces for solo cello (Six Figures, 1998), and guitar (Five Preludes, 1999), to the Chamber Concerto for fifteen players, the Concerto for Hurdy-Gurdy and Percussion, and Lento, premièred by the BBC Symphony Orchestra at the Barbican in 1991, and performed by the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra, conducted by Ilan Volkov at the 2010 BBC Proms.

Painting and mixed media solo exhibition at Domino Gallery. Artist: N. Bartos

@ Domino Gallery, 11 Upper Newington Street, Liverpool, L1 2SR

Artist: Nicole Bartos. 2016, 2017

Notes about the artworks and exhibition:

Selected paintings, collages and mixed media and drawings with vibrant chromatic and abstract content depicting dream like flights and wonders into the realm and expressions of energy flow, mind and soul, as well as some captions from nature and city scapes as one walks by.

“An intriguing body of work that captivates the viewer through its reflections into a general analysis of abstract and creative expressions, resuming to vibrations that rise from innermost subconscious and are depicted spontaneously, against curtains of music and sound perceived as colour.
Looking down or up into a crown of highlights from the subconscious meridian, while ‘lifting up’ or ‘discrediting apprehension and abstract ‘quotations’ from the back of the mind, stand out like coruscating fusions and perceptions, the abstract recognitions of spiritual spaces and inner worlds.
Alloys of expressive energies, sometimes almost in a mathematical and geometrical tracing, give birth to strong and lively chromatic compositions and combinations imbued with musical rhythms, voice and poetry.” (Text written and updated by the artist)

Venue address: Domino Gallery,11 Upper Newington, Liverpool L1 2SR
