This Saturday (22 October 2016) two ground-breaking commissions by Christian Mason and Huang Ruo give you the chance to perform in world premieres with the London Sinfonietta at St John’s Smith Square as part of CONNECT: The Audience as Artist. With no musical experience needed, glass bottles, baoding balls, tin foil, harmonicas and whispers will be your instruments.
CONNECT is a European-wide project to create and perform new compositions which involve the public in their realisation. The works performed this weekend will also receive performances by the project’s other core ensembles: Asko|Schönberg in Amsterdam, Ensemble Modern in Frankfurt and Remix Ensemble Casa da Música in Porto.
Ahead of the concert, we have created a playlist of music by both composers.
