Bourne Davis Kane to work with Piers Hellawell for New Music Biennial 2014June 21st, 2013
The PRS Foundation’s New Music Biennial consists of twenty composers and commissioning organisations that have been selected to produce new musical work in 2014.
Working closely with Belfast-based composer (and longtime friend of the band) Piers Hellawell, Bourne Davis Kane will workshop the material together, with each of us leaving behind our respective working methods, whereby Piers will then: “…refine these extended results into a musical fabric for performance, one that is neither separably ‘mine’ nor ‘theirs’ but inseparably ‘ours’.”
Amongst the dates being planned, these so far include the World premiere of the work at the Belfast Festival (28-29 March), with subsequent performances at Southbank Centre (4-6 July), and in Glasgow (2-3 August) as part of the 2014 Commonwealth Games celebrations. You can keep up to date with the progress of these concerts via the Appearances page.
