Articulate Silences has moved to a new website called counter-melody. In case you’ve not yet found us in our new home, here’s what you might have missed over the last couple of months:
Voices and Piano, Peter Ablinger – The Austrian composer’s large scale “song cycle” for piano and recorded speech maps the liminal spaces between voice and language, sound and music.
Violin Concerto: Concentric Paths, Thomas Adès – From orbit through to perilous flight, the violin carves deep into space in the music of the British composer.
Cantus in Memoriam Benjamin Britten, Arvo Pärt – The music of the Estonian composer is laced through with an obsession with church bells: their unsettling suggestion of the sacred and the profane.
Playlist: Almost Nothing – The impossibility of immediacy in the music of Cage, Ferrari and López.
Head over to the new site to read the latest posts from the Articulate Silences team – happy listening!
