Ahead of the premiere of her new work commissioned by Fruitmarket and p.e.r.s.o.n.a.l.c.l.u.t.t.e.r, composer Sara Glojnarić will be in conversation with journalist and author Kate Molleson, presenter of BBC Radio 3’s New Music Show and author of the award-winning book Sound Within Sound: A History of Radical Twentieth Century Composers (Faber, 2022).
7.30–8.30pm: p.e.r.s.o.n.a.l.c.l.u.t.t.e.r // d.e.e.p.t.i.m.e @ f.r.u.i.t.m.a.r.k.e.t
p.e.r.s.o.n.a.l.c.l.u.t.t.e.r present a programme for Deep Time that explores the fragility of stasis, slowness, and the natural world amid the clamour of clickbait, short attention spans and the Information Age. From the disparate to the hyperconnected, the timeless to the ever-changing, the audience will be drawn from internal moments to an extroverted and hyperactive present.
Through the lens of selected composers whose themes include deep listening, movement, popular culture and ritual, p.e.r.s.o.n.a.l.c.l.u.t.t.e.r invite the audience to pay attention to the quiet as well as the noise, and experience minute and sometimes frantic changes in their bodies alongside more spacious meditations. The programme opens with a new work, seconds, minutes, hours, eons by composer Sara Glojnarić – commissioned for Deep Time by Fruitmarket and p.e.r.s.o.n.a.l.c.l.u.t.t.e.r – which contextualises the concept of deep time by making seamless jumps from the Big Bang to Brexit through a hybrid form that combines a concert scenario with scripted reality and musiktheater, to reflect on the history of time through the eyes of a millennial in a post-internet world.
