Icebreaker Live

Recycled

Icebreaker perform five new works by composers Ed Bennett, Paul Whitty, Linda Buckley, Craig Vear and Roy Carroll, alongside Julia Wolfe's classic work Big Beautiful Dark and Scary, in a new arrangement..

NEXT PERFORMANCES:

Ivy Arts Centre, Surrey University, Guildford, December 3rd 2015 

Icebreaker launch their new project, based on the idea of recycling with five new works and a classic.  Ed Bennett's Suspect Device recycles the eponymous song by Stiff Little Fingers, Roy Carroll uses feedback loops made from the sounds of people's instruments, Craig Vear is using LAN-connected computers to send fragments of existing musical material to players live, and Paul Whitty is recycling a whole piece from Icebreaker's existing repertorie (Michael Gordon's Yo Shakespeare), but with a startlingly different effect.

After performances at the Audiograft Festival in Oxford and at the Birmingham Conservatoire, the next concert is at Surrey University on Dec. 3rd.
