TREVOR WISHART PAST AND FUTURE PERFORMANCES
Throughout February, Wishart’s works Encounters in the Republic of Heaven and The Secret Resonance of Things were performed at the University of Montreal with Encounters in the Republic of Heaven receiving a second performance later that month at the University of Calgary. Red Bird was also performed at Durham during the ‘Musicon’ concert series.
Encounters in the Republic of Heaven, an 8-channel sound-surround piece based on speaking voices recorded in the North East of England, again proved itself to be one of Wishart’s most popular works as it was performed at ‘Sound Junction’ in Sheffield. This performance opened the celebrations for ‘Sound Lab Week’ to launch the Centre for New Music in Sheffield and was accompanied by a pre-concert talk given by Wishart.
Moreover, in April, Vocalise and The Secret Resonance of Things were performed as part of the XIII Festival Internacional El Callejon del Ruido.
Then, in December, Encounters in the Republic of Heaven will be performed at Bruckner University’s ‘Sonic Lab’ and Alte Schmeide will then be performed in Vienna.
Here at UYMP we would like to congratulate Wishart on this fantastic series of concerts and wish him and all the performers, the best of luck for the future recitals.
