Singing Bowl Orchestra

  • 16 May 2014 9-10pm

Throughout the 20th century composers sought to advance the boundaries of harmony, rhythm, tonality, form and texture in music. This new and unfamiliar music presented increasingly difficult challenges to performers and listeners alike. As the most effective way to learn to appreciate modern music is to play it - as it engages the mind with the complexity of the writing and the often complex systems that make up the form of the piece - the music became ever more inaccessible to the proverbial layman, widening the gap between composers and listeners. Tibetan singing bowls are very easy to play and the techniques required can be mastered, even by complete beginners, in an hour or two. Thus the singing bowl is the perfect tool for modern composition as it places the responsibility for the very exact microtonal tunings on the composer rather than on the performer. The advanced and complex rhythmic effects that feature in modern music are achieved by using indeterminate scoring techniques similar to those of Cage or Lutoslawski. The Singing Bowl Orchestra is a contemporary music group from Liverpool based on these principles of inclusion in modern music. The group was founded in 2012 by composer Alex Scott. This is a LightNight event, Liverpool's one-night arts & culture festival. Part of Museums at Night.. Visit www.lightnightliverpool.co.uk for more details and the full programme.
