Be there for the London premiere of the third in a cycle of four works by composer James Dillon, performed by the London Sinfonietta.
The Scottish composer is known for his eclectic influences and this work appears to transform the ancient Greek goddess of magic, Circe, into an enchanting musical form, with moments of suspense, playfulness and mystical musicality throughout.
Noted in the score, the goddess’ particular powers appear as transmutation, illusion and necromancy.
Dillon’s score for 16 players conjures an unnerving otherworldly fairy tale, summoning intriguing images from folklore and Greek mythology.
Artists from Central St Martins create video art in response to the piece.
Commissioned in 2017 by Kunststiftung NRW and Ensemble Musikfabrik.
