Ten Tors Orchestra celebrate their first ever appearance at new performance venue The House with a premiere of Shockwaves by acclaimed resident composer, pianist and scientist Eduardo Reck Miranda.
Shockwaves has been especially commissioned for the occasion. Those lucky enough to have attended 2015's BioMusic Festival will have no doubt marvelled at Miranda's pioneering meeting of science and art, which garnered media praise from the likes of the BBC, The Guardian, The Independent, The Telegraph, The Wire magazine, Drowned In Sound and FACT - among many others; with VICE media's Creator's Project hailing the work done by Miranda at Peninsula Arts, Plymouth University as:
"An epicentre for musical experimentation and research into far-out sonification and musification techniques." - Creators Project
The concert also features a violin solo performed by
Plymouth PhD Music research student Pierre Largeron, a graduate of the Royal
Academy of Music and two great classics, Barber’s
sumptuous Adagio and Mozart's majestic Jupiter Symphony. While Boyce
Symphony No.5 provides the fanfare opening to this special event.
