Metallicas (world première)
The centrepiece of this performance is the world premiere of Stylianos Dimou’s Metallicas where acoustic sounds undergo electronic transformation resulting in the assembly of sonic twins.
Featuring emerging composers alongside established 20th century greats the programme has been curated to showcase Psappha’s virtuoso musicians in an eclectic mix of music that – along with tape and electronics – explores the sonorities of each individual instrument.
