Plus Minus presents a concert of works tracing the ensemble’s unique range of interests — from alternative notions of music theatre through to the micro-investigation of sound and high-concept approaches to contemporary music making. Two UK premieres by Jennifer Walshe and Joanna Bailie will join new pieces especially written for the group by Newton Armstrong and James Weeks.

A concert exploring the possibilities created from interaction between live performance and digital technology. Steen-Andersen’s work turns a sonic microscope on the voice, amplifying and recontextualising phonemes into musical phrases while Ablinger transcribes the microvariations of a blank vinyl record for solo piano. Prins pits the live performer against a virtual avatar, blending the acoustic and digital together in a new reality. In Rodgers’ piece, a handson exploration of the sonic possibilities of percussion is captured and transformed by live sampling, the electronic processing enhancing and augmenting the live performance.
