Jenny Jackson

I am a composer (yikes)

Hooting, not Drinking

Leave a comment

This is a recording of one of two new pieces I wrote for the Platform 4 Drinking & Hooting event on Saturday 21st May. The solo flute is played by Rachel Shirley, and the blown bottles by the Platform 4 Ensemble. I’m quite pleased (shock, horror)…

Got to get my head down and start working (properly) on my dance piece now, for this event:

Saturday 24th September 2016
Drama Studio, Shearwood Rd, Sheffield S10 2TD, United Kingdom

Four composers, one choreographer, a dancer and a soprano… an adventurous performance of new work in which sound embodies movement and movement embodies sound.

A Platform 4 collaboration with dancer Hannah Wadsworth and soprano Andrea Tweedale.
