It is Stuart Stevens’s masterpiece and his PhD composition, which he realised a few months before his sudden death in February 2016.
The work was written entirely using 31-tone equal temperament to create new harmony, melody and texture, immersive soundscapes mixed with dramatic speech producing a music-theatre-opera mix.
The work is to be performed at the Royal Birmingham Conservatoire on Friday 5th April. Many thanks to fellow Old Wulfrunian, Simon George (OW 1980) for passing this information on.
Venue: Recital Hall, Royal Birmingham Conservatoire. 200 Jennens Road, B4 7XR.
Cost: £10 (£8)
