Event description
An immersive concert experience curated and composed by Yfat Soul Zisso, featuring vocalists Loré Lixenberg and Rosie Middleton.

About this Event

Stationing four vocalists in separate corners of the St Johns Waterloo space, Nonclassical Associate Composer Yfat Soul Zisso explores themes of solitude and connectedness in this new work, composed for this event. Accompanied by layered electronics, these four distinct voices within contemporary music – including Loré Lixenberg, Rosie Middleton, Fleur de Bray and Zisso herself – present a multi-directional performance, using the space as a canvas to conjure expressive lines and melodies.

Yfat Soul Zisso is a composer and soprano based in Birmingham, UK. Soul has had her work performed by the BBC National Orchestra of Wales, Birmingham Contemporary Music Group and the Fidelio Trio. Her interests range from the use of different microtonal sound worlds and textures to children’s books and the exploration of various extended techniques. She is currently studying for a PhD that focuses on creating a quarter-tone compositional language suitable for western singers to learn.

Born in the UK, Loré Lixenberg has undertaken composition lessons with Andy Vores, Robert Saxton and John Woolwich and masterclasses with Peter Maxwell Davies, and has studied singing with David Mason, Nicole Tibbels, Elizabeth Soderstrom, Martin Isepp and Galina Vishnevskaya.

Her career began performing in physical theatre with Complicite, working with Simon Mcburney on Out of a House Walked a Man for the National Theatre that used texts by the Soviet writer Daniil Harms. Following this, her work has spanned performances on concert platforms and opera scenes to installations and vocal performances with experimental visual and sound artists (Stelarc, Bruce Mclean, David Toop). She has worked with and performed the works of Georges Aperghis, Bent Sørensen, Helmut Oehring, Mark-Anthony Turnage, György Ligeti, Karlheinz Stockhausen, Beat Furrer, Harrison Birtwistle, Peter Maxwell Davies, Earle Brown, Luc Ferrari, Frederic Acquaviva and Gerald Barry at contemporary music festivals worldwide. She has recently published her first artist book, Memory Maps (Editions AcquAvivA), and her first monographic CD, The afternoon of a phone (£@B). She runs Berlin-based projects + raum with composer Frederic Acquaviva.

Mezzo-soprano Rosie Middleton specialises in new music. In 2019 Rosie was artist in residence at Snape Maltings and The Banff Centre, where she collaborated with composers Laura Bowler, Catherine Kontz, Esin Gunduz and Michael Betteridge on Voice(less) – a series of works for voice and electronics exploring voice-loss, voicelessness and things that stop speech or sound. Her work is supported by Arts Council England, Help Musicians, The Finzi Trust and The Marchus Trust.

Future engagements include Ed Nesbitt’s Antigone with the East London Music Group and Jamie Hamilton’s Versionland with Phaedra Ensemble.

Fleur de Bray is a soprano and composer. She has performed extensively as a soloist in major venues and productions internationally, including for Opera North, La Mortella (Ischia) and the Royal Albert Hall. Fleur is also a member of the Philharmonia Chorus Professional Singers Scheme and recently enjoyed her debut as soloist in The Royal Albert Hall for Raymond Gubbay productions.
