Faster Than Sound is Aldeburgh Music’s groundbreaking strand of programming that joins the dots between musical genres and digital art forms. Developing a fresh approach focused on commissions, residencies and collaborations, the project places strong emphasis on emerging technologies and original ideas.
Aurora’s debut appearance as part of the FTS series sees a quartet of string players join composers Anna Meredith and Mira Calix, design and research studio Loop.pH, and eminent neuroscientist Professor Vincent Walsh to explore the rich scientific, sound and visual world of the brain and the concept of Small World organisation (more popularly known as six degrees of separation).
This promises to be another surprising and thought-provoking Faster Than Sound project, following on from the inspirational Music and the Brain series in this year’s Aldeburgh Festival.
