The second weekend of this grassroots new-music festival, curated by composer Randy Gibson and soprano Megan Schubert, opens with the premiere of Nick Hallett's Rainbow Passage on Fri 22. An electroacoustic vocal work in which all the sounds are processed and transformed into an aural tapestry inflected with ancient and modern techniques, the work is performed by Hallett, Schubert and Daisy Press as a ritual, against a live-cinema backdrop. The festival closes on Sat 23 with a reprise of Gibson's immersive, drone-based composition, Apparition of the Four Pillars.
