Marrella Moulting is a forty-five minute piece written by bassist Dominic Lash (Convergence Quartet, Set Ensemble, Predicate) for Consorts, a new ensemble he has convened with some of the most exciting and adventurous young musicians in London. Combining written notation with the extensive improvising experience of the septet, the piece also draws on the music of composers such as Phill Niblock and his work with sustained tones (albeit without Phill’s customary high-gain assault). Marrella Moulting promises an intense, dramatic and immersive experience.
This evening will see the second performance of Marella Moulting, as well as the premiere of a new piece specially composed for this concert.
Dominic Lash, double bass, Angharad Davies, violin
