Event 56: tableaux vivants – notés inegales

tableaux vivants explores a radical new way of communicating music through the use of live ‘animated’ scores and projected visuals. Working with innovative, young British composers Martin Iddon and Michael Young, it delves into the relationship between computer and performer with scores that evolve on screens as the players interpret them. tableaux vivants highlights the paradox between living, thinking participants and controlled agents. notes inegales, one of the most exciting new ensembles in London, draw on contemporary and free musics and are renowned for their superlative mixing of scores and improvisation. Described as ‘post-fusion’ they perform regularly in their home at Euston, club inegales with a wide-range of guest artists from Seb Rochford to Chris Wood to Byron Wallen to Evan Parker. See clubinegales.com

Other projects have included …brew, The Miles Davis Project and HOT- an infernal cabaret. They are directed by Peter Wiegold, a distinguished composer and an experienced innovator in new methods of music-making, who has often worked across different traditions and cultures.

The concert also includes Shuffle, by inspriational artist Christian Marclay, where images of music in everyday life are taken as the basis for a spontaneous musical score.

Orlando Gough, composer
