  • Composition fellow David Sawer will be performing at the Proms on the 20th August at the Roundhouse, The Proms' industrial answer to the Royal Albert Hall. with a programme which takes its lead from Ligeti’s iconic Ramifications. This embracing score, for two groups of spatially positioned strings, is heard alongside music by one of Ligeti’s natural musical heirs, Georg Friedrich Haas, and other new pieces concerned with physical space. The concert culminates in a major work from David Sawer that reflects the energy and physicality of dance.Read his interview in the Guardian online at https://www.theguardian.com/music/2016/aug/15/facing-the-music-composer-...

  • Congratulations to fellow Michael Simpson

  • Michael Simpson scooped the prestigious John Moores painting prize for a piece of work which artist Ansel Krut called a “wonderfully understated, conceptually elegant work” recalling the church interiors painted by the 17th-century Dutch artist Pieter Saenredam. Simpson won an Arts Foundation fellowship for painting back in 2000 while working on his series of Bench paintings. This year he won for a painting called Leper Squint 19, depicting a ladder underneath a “leper squint” – a medieval church window that allowed people with leprosy, and other “undesirables”, a chance to watch sermons below. Ansel goes on to say, “The painting uses an almost minimal vocabulary to open up a world of great sympathetic imagination. It touches on the nature of silence, on distance and on exclusion. But most importantly, it touches on the privileges of looking.” Well done Michael.
