The Tyranny of Fun

Today we had the first rehearsal for Richard Baker’s new work for the Birmingham Contemporary Music Group, The Tyranny of Fun for which I have devised the electronics. The piece, which re-conceives Ravel’s La Valse in the world of 80s Disco music features an electronic percussion part which utilises a specially built set of percussion mallets with accelerometer in the heads. The premier is on the 15th February at the CBSO Centre in Berkeley Street Birmingham.
