Richard Reed Parry Music for Heart and Breath
The Riot Ensemble are at the forefront of the contemporary music scene, touring across Europe and regularly featured on BBC broadcasts. They return to Spitalfields Music Festival this year with a programme of work by some of Canada’s most exciting contemporary composers at Trinity Buoy Wharf, London’s only lighthouse.
Richard Reed Parry (best known as member of Grammy Award-winning band Arcade Fire) keys into the most basic of all rhythms, the human heartbeat, for his Music for Heart and Breath. Instrumentalists will be connected to stethoscopes, their heartbeats act as a metronome and their breath the downbeat of a conductor’s baton. As each individual’s body-rhythms are different, so is each performance of Music for Heart and Breath, providing a unique experience for both audience and performers. The programme will also feature Christopher Mayo’s Beast and a UK premiere of Nicole Lizée’s Black Midi.
