Performance Space

Strasbourg based collective lovemusic return to City, with a programme of music for ensemble, electronics and light, specially created in response to the darkness of the Winter months.

Heart of Light was imagined for the month of February, the last month of winter, a distinctive colour lingering on the horizon giving us the impression something new is coming. Light has a central place in the ideas behind all the music.

Finbar Hosie’s new work The Hyacinth Garden invites us on a political and sensuous exploration through waste lands and gardens, in search of togetherness and separation in space and sound. Noriko Baba’s Bonbori is a sound painting of the beauty of Japanese lacquerware glimmering in candlelight in a dark room. Mic Spencer’s new piece, nuthin lik disperr, part of his love letters cycle, is inspired by the poem of the same name by Tom Leonard, an ode to the joy of metaphorical darkness.

Santiago Díez Fischer’s love fragments takes Sappho’s fragments on love and desire as the starting point, beginning with the line, “You Burn me” and is part of a new album to be released in the Spring of 2023 documenting his work with lovemusic. Finally in Sasha Blondeau’s Sortir du noir (title “stolen” from Georges Didi-Huberman’s book of the same name) two types of light collide – strong and intentional (roaming searchlights) with fleeting and inadvertent (lamps of lost people).
