Composer Michael Nyman returns with an eye on the movies for October 2010 Barbican date
One of Britain's most-celebrated and acclaimed composers returns to the Barbican Centre in October, unveiling a brand new work as well a recent addition to his vast back catalogue.
The date in question is Sunday 17th October and tickets are on sale now at £25, no doubt selling quickly as I type!
The first part of the programme for this concert will include a rendition of the 2009 song-cycle, "The Glare", co-performed with ex-Thieves crooner and Bernard Butler-partner, David McAlmont. This is an interesting set of songs - McAlmont used current news stories to inspire the lyrics, with Nyman plundering his rich catalogue for re-readings of music from throughout his career. The critics fell over themselves to appraise the album with many stars and plaudits.
The second part sees Nyman unveil a brand new instrumental piece, based on Vertov's "Man With A Movie Camera" originally released in 1929 as a silent documentary about Soviet city-life. The film was a landmark release in that it used various cinema-techniques that we take for granted, such as slow motion, cut-up and freeze-frames. Nyman has now created a 'shot-by-shot' soundtrack for the film, something that makes this presentation unique to the Barbican. The piece will be performed in its entirety by The Michael Nyman Band.
