Guest composer, Trevor Wishart, introduces this
‘Encounters in the Republic of Heaven’
This piece is constructed in four Acts, combining portraits of individual speakers recorded in the North East of England where Trevor Wishart was Arts Council England Composer-in-Residence from October 2006 to September 2009, while based at the University of Durham.
The voices (accompanied by sounds and imaginary instruments derived from the voices themselves) are combined with computer animation, speech that waltzes, speech that locks in harmony and clouds of speech that circle the audience, culminating with speech that transforms into song.
