Everything Starts Elsewhere
lovemusic UK tour 2019
Three monodic instruments coming together for which the composers explore the capabilities of this unusual trio. Everything Starts Elsewhere refers to a text by Argentinian poet Roberto Juarroz used for one of the pieces of this programme, but also to the creative process of transmission that begins in the imagination of composers, evolves into a written form, and which is then interpreted by the musicians and reinterpreted by the public. The text also refers to the itinerant nature of music, especially for this programme that reflects music from both sides of the Channel: created on one side and performed on the other. Imagined around a new piece by Jérôme Combier, commissioned by the collective, this programme will be performed as part of the collective's 2018-19 season at the BNU in Strasbourg before going on tour to Edinburgh, Manchester, Leeds, Durham, Keele and London.
The new music collective lovemusic develop and present innovative programmes which are not restricted by genre or a specific instrumental formation but rather explore aesthetic and creative ideas to produce an alternative yet coherent discourse. The collective enjoy exploring all repertoires and their work in direct collaboration with today’s composers completes their programming offering a new and original viewpoint of the present…
