Tonight the entire performance of P.A.R.A.D.E. will livestream on Facebook at 7pm. I wrote the music for the outdoor performance by manipulating the BBC NOW’s recording of Satie’s ‘Parade’ – look out for a Musak version of the main themes accompanying the indoor performances at the Wales Millennium Centre by tuning in tonight.
Tonight I listened to BBC NOW recording Satie’s ‘Parade’, conducted by Martin Yates. I will be using the recording as the basis for a new work written for Marc Rees and National Dance Company Wales. I will be posting much more about this event over the next few weeks and this recording session marks the start of a lot of studio work for me! The first performances are on the 24th and 25th of October in the WMC in Cardiff with performances in Pontio, Bangor shortly afterwards.
