Katherine Young Premieres "bow breath crow" at London's Cut & Splice Festival

Since 2003, the Cut & Splice Festival has been a crucial resource and venue for electroacoustic and experimental music in the UK. Broadcast on BBC3's "Hear and Now" program, this festival has begun a new curatorial format where a single ensemble that curates and performs a series of concerts, co-sponsored by Sound and Music's "Composer-Curator" program.

This year's curator-performers are Manchester's Distractfold Ensemble, who will perform the world premiere of Katherine Young's bow breath crow on March 11th. Written for amplified string trio and spatialized electronics, bow breath crow will premiere in Hallé St. Peter's in Manchester, and will be recorded for broadcast on BBC3.

Check out Distractfold's "sneak peek" playlist for the festival below.

New York City audiences will be able to hear new works from the album, as well as other works by Gosfield, performed on September 14th at the Bohemian National Hall at the Czech Center, as a part of the Austrian Cultural Forum's annual Moving Sounds Festival.
