EVERYTHING STARTS ELSEWHERE – LOVEMUSIC

EVERYTHING STARTS ELSEWHERE – LOVEMUSIC

lovemusic is a musicians’ collective that aims to promote contemporary music. lovemusic’s work, in direct collaboration with today’s composers, is an essential part of their adventurous programming, which offers a fresh and original viewpoint on the present. This programme is based on a newly commissioned work for flute, clarinet and voice composed by Jérôme Combier, which will be heard alongside pieces by established French and British composers John Craft, Gilbert Army, Pascal Dusapin, Martin Iddon and Betsy Jolas, in a series of concerts in the UK. The piece uses three monodic instruments, with the composer exploring the possibilities of this unusual arrangement. Everything starts elsewhere references a text by Roberto Juarroz that is used in one of the pieces but also the creative process of transmission: beginning in the composer’s mind, evolving into written form, interpreted by performers and reinterpreted by the public.
