It was a real pleasure to host a ‘New Dischord Festival’ event at our loft, and it proved a great opportunity to get new faces in our place and gain some exposure. My composition ‘CTRL+ALT+SPEAK’ was a collaboration with Ashley Hamilton and was an excellent first foray into collaborative work with my partner. The performance consisted of a vocal sextet in which the six vocalists stood around Ashley’s sculptural installation and sang “into” the piece with the audience surrounding them. The two performances were well received and the talk-back afterwards was engaging, particularly for us as collaborators!
