Since their last concert in London in November 2019, the four composer-performers who comprise Bastard Assignments have been in different countries, only able to meet online (documented by their series of remote pieces: the Lockdown Jams). New working collaborations were made in situ and have produced the pieces made by Edward Henderson and Lewis Spear, who rehearsed in deserted City Lit classrooms in London; and Tim Cape and Mayah Kadish, who have been living together in Italy.

Edward Henderson’s Will was previously performed once in Oslo in February 2020 before the world shut down. Source material including recordings of Berlin construction sites and the dance track I Feel Space by Lindstrøm obliquely refer to intimate and euphoric encounters. Caitlin Rowley created a collaged score that combines the striations in rocks found at Cornish beaches with patterns formed by the lines on maritime charts for her solo viola piece A Memory of Wind.

Programme:

Timothy CapeSorry for the late reply. Performed by Timothy Cape (percussion).

Bastard Assignments are Timothy Cape, Edward Henderson, Caitlin Rowley and Josh Spear, four composer-performers making work that explores experimental music, performativity and movement. We work collaboratively and have developed a shared creative practice. We organise performances in London and show work across the UK and internationally.
