Disarming Reverbrations

Award-winning composer Martin Green (Lau) brings together elements of vocal harmony, brass, and live electronic manipulation to create a sonic world that is both entirely contemporary and immediately at home in this historic building.

The piece will feature the heart-breaking sounds of Dublin a cappella quartet Landless with the rich sound of Alba Brass, now something of an institution in modern brass playing. Included in the piece will be settings of the Burns collected songs Ca’ The Yowes and Lassie Lie Near me.

Green is well known both for his work with the ground-breaking Lau, and as a
composer at the forefront of the contemporary music scene. Recent commissioners have included The Kronos Quartet, Opera North, The Barbican, London and Edinburgh International Festival. With Lau he has received several BBC Folk Awards and he has been awarded the Paul Hamlyn Award for Composers.
