Pioneers of Percussion

Due to the extreme weather conditions, the University of Chichester is closed on Saturday. Unfortunately this event has been cancelled.

Described by one reviewer as an‘insanely talented British percussionist’, Joby Burgess brings a three-metre aluminium harp, a typewriter, loop pedals, video projection and
electronic fusion to this revelatory and virtuosic programme. Works include Nicole Lizée’s newly written The Filthy Fifteen, Linda Buckley’s trance-evoking Ekstasis, Toru Takemitsu’s delicately traversed soundscape Seasons and Iannis Xenakis’s explosive Psappha.
