The new music collective lovemusic develop and present innovative programmes which are not restricted by genre or a specific instrumental formation but rather explore aesthetic and creative ideas to produce an alternative yet coherent discourse. The collective enjoy exploring all repertoires and their work in direct collaboration with today’s composers completes their programming offering a new and original viewpoint of the present…

This programme is based around a newly commissioned work for flute, clarinet and voice by Jérôme Combier which will be heard in echo with works by established French and British based composers. Three monodic instruments coming together for which the composers explore the capabilities of this unusual trio. Everything Starts Elsewhere references the text by Roberto Juarroz for one of the pieces but also the creative process of transmission: Beginning in the composers mind, evolving into written form, interpreted by performers and reinterpreted by the public. It also makes reference to the itinerant nature of music especially in this programme which mirrors music from both sides of the Channel.

Supported by Diaphonique, Franco-British fund for contemporary music in partnership with the French Institute in the UK, the Sacem, the British Council, the Minister of Culture, The Bureau Export and the French Institute.
