soundfestival and Musiques Démesurées have been collaborating since 2013 and wish to continue this positive and mutually beneficial relationship. soundfestival 2018 puts the spotlight on women composers from France and the UK and commissions a new work from a young French composer, Raphaèle Biston. Four major contemporary composers will be involved: Raphaèle Biston, Pascale Criton, Rebecca Saunders and Francesco Filidei. In their pieces, they explore ways of giving meaning to silence and the nuances of instrumental performances.
Pascale Criton (FR) - Territoires imperceptibles
Rebecca Saunders (UK) - Vermilion
Francesco Filidei (IT) - Exercise of Madness II
Raphaèle Biston (FR) - Traces
