Musica Nova Helsinki | Hard flip

Saturday, 2 February 2019

At the first concert, Crash Ensemble will perform the premiere of Grey Area by resident composer Sam Perkin, who is one of the hottest names in contemporary Irish music. Perkin – a skateboarder and contemporary composer – combines, in a surprising way, orchestral music and a nighttime skateboarding video in which the audience is taken on a hypnotic journey through the streets of Dublin and Cork. The concert also features the premiere of Resonance Orbit by Finnish-Canadian Matthew Whittallcommission by Musica Nova for Crash (read more about Matthew's writing process here), as well as Glamour Sleeper by ensemble founder, Donnacha Dennehy.
