Nils Frahm / Barbican Centre

 

 

POSSIBLY COLLIDING FESTIVAL 

For a whole weekend musician Nils Frahm and friends took over spaces across the Barbican, premiering new projects and pieces. Esmeralda put together an ensemble of 40 mixed voices singing a cappella songs from Peter Liversidge’s proposal ‘Icelandic Choral Piece’. Based on Icelandic fishing sagas, the piece features nine vocalisations/songs written from the point of view of those who are left on land waiting for those at sea to return. Sight specific performance.
