Soprano Juliet Fraser returns to City with a programme featuring Alvin Lucier‘s pioneering work for female voice and pure wave oscillators alongside two brand-new works that respond to the writings of American marine biologist and environmentalist Rachel Carson.

Inspired by Carson’s ‘Sea Trilogy’, Nwando Ebizie enters the world of deep time to draw parallels between the personal and the cosmic; Newton Armstrong explores the image of a constant underwater ‘snowfall’ of sediment that descends gradually to intensely dark depths, forming a swirling, descending murmuration of diversely particulate matter.

Soprano Juliet Fraser specialises in the gnarly edges of contemporary classical music. Internationally recognised as a committed interpreter of new music, Juliet regularly appears as a guest soloist with ensembles such as Musikfabrik, Klangforum Wien, Ensemble Modern, Remix, Talea and Quatuor Bozzini. She is also a core member of EXAUDI vocal ensemble, which she co-founded with composer/conductor James Weeks and which celebrates its twentieth anniversary this year.
