Anton Lukoszevieze and Jack Sheen have been working together since 2016 on new works for and with one another and their ensembles, which range from absurd, ritual-like solo works to expansive site-specific operas.

For this performance, organised by Glasgow Experimental Music Series and its Artistic Director Gregor Forbes, Lukoszevieze and Sheen will perform two works written for each other:

Anton Lukoszevieze
Solo for Conductor (2018) for conductor, video and sound.

Solo for Conductor, in 3 parts. Different sources and locations create a shifting and interpenetrative development of gestural futility. A postcard of a semaphore in Alexandria, sent to someone’s mother in Manchester. Mahler conducting at the Metropolitan Opera in NYC and Thomas Bernhard’s nihilistically devastating epigrams.

Jack Sheen
Solo for Cello (2019-2021) for cello and audio.

Like a spinning top, Solo for Cello is both hyperkinetic and still, reeling around the hollowed-out sounds of the instrument upon a collage of hiss and hum into the elongated blocks that form the three parts of this 45’ piece.
