Event description
A concert by Ensemble Matters, focussed around the theme 'Shades of Light' and featuring two world premieres.

About this event

This concert marks the culmination of Ensemble Matters’s yearlong preparation around their theme of the year, “Shades of Light”. The programme boasts two world premieres in response to the theme: composer Amy Crankshaw’s nature-inspired chamber work, Golden Hour, and artist Alondra Ruiz-Hernandez’s short film inspired by Rachmaninoff’s tone poem, Isle of the Dead. Amy Crankshaw’s new work witnesses her interest in the intersection between music and the natural environment, particularly exploring the sonic equivalent of how changing light affects one’s perception of the surrounding environment. On a metaphorical level, Alondra Ruiz-Hernandez’s short film, inspired by and to be screened to the live performance of Rachmaninoff’s Isle of the Dead (chamber version arr. by Owen Ho), explores the intricacies between life and death in the broader context of our current condition.

A hotbed of creativity and pioneering development, Bloomsbury also has one of the youngest and most diverse residential populations in the country. Bloomsbury Festival acts as a catalyst bringing together the area's artists, scientists and residents to explore arts and ideas through the prism of an annual theme.

Outside the Festival event, the organisation delivers community engagement and arts development projects across the year. These include it’s pioneering project, Festival in a Box, which takes artists into the homes of people living with dementia to provide life enhancing and joyful cultural experiences.
