Cut & Splice Festival 2017, Manchester: Day 2 Pass
Distractfold Ensemble is proud to present Cut & Splice Festival 2017, Manchester, a festival of live, immersive, participatory and acousmatic new music. Cut & Splice Festival is presented in partnership with Sound and Music, the UK’s national charity for new music, and BBC Radio 3. It is part of Sound and Music’s wider Composer-Curator national touring programme. For two days and nights in March, Distractfold will take over Hallé St Peter's and Hallé St Michael's in Ancoats, with an exciting and groundbreaking programme of music that explores technology as an unreliable narrator – a witty, distracted, vague, at times misleading ally.
