Premiere: Kate Moore – Magenta Magnetic

Major new work from Kate Moore for a project in association with the European Space Agency with funds provided by Fonds Podiumkunsten.

Kate is a Dutch-Australian composer, whose music has been performed by Icebreaker in our System Restart project.  The work for that programme ,The Dam, won the prestigious Matthijs Vermeulen Prize for composition in 2017, the first time it had been won by a woman.  

Now Kate has written a new work for us - Magenta Magnetic - which will be premiered at the Gaida Festival in Vilnius, Lithuania on October 18th 2019, with a UK premiere at Surrey University on 5th November 2019.  Further performances are planned for 2020, in conjunction with ESTEC, the European Space Research and Technology Centre, part of the European Space Agency, who co-commissioned the project.
