* No musical experience necessary!
Two ground-breaking commissions by Christian Mason and Huang Ruo give you the chance to perform world premieres with the London Sinfonietta. No musical experience is needed: glass bottles, baoding balls, tin foil, harmonicas and whispers will be your instruments.
Christian Mason’s In the Midst of Sonorous Islands will take you on a sonic adventure, making metallic and blown sounds that mirror the percussion played by London Sinfonietta on stage.
Huang Ruo’s The Sonic Great Wall meditates on the Great Wall of China: surround yourself with whispered poetry evoking the myths of those spirits that protect it.
