juice reinvents the love song!
Article Post Date: Wednesday 20.10.2010

Dear all,

We are excited to announce the London premiere of Laid Bare: 10 Love Songs.  This year, juice challenged some of the UK's most noteable composers and songwriters to take a fresh look at the world's most clichéd popular musical form: the love song. The result is a superb collection of punchy a cappella works from an enticingly eclectic group of artists: featuring Anna Meredith, Damien Harron, Phillip Neil Martin, Errollyn Wallen, Jim Moray, Roxanna Panufnik, Mica Levi aka Micachu, Gavin Bryars, E.Laine and Dai Fujikura.

Listen to a showreel of the 10 songs HERE

We are incredibly excited about these 10 fantastically diverse new pieces. Please do come and share what will be a very exciting and special night for us.

This is also a collaborative concert with Ensemble Scratch the Surface and in addition to our love songs, will include an audiovisual performance for modified piano by pianist extraordinaire Leon Mitchener, a [re]construction of hybrid pianos by composer Claudia Molitor and pianist Sarah Nicolls, and films by visual artist Aura Satz and collective Flat-e. This event is curated by Mikhail Karikis with Conall Gleeson and juice.

Friday 22nd October, 8.00pm
