Event Details

Gemma New and the orchestra collaborate with multi-media artist Amy
McIntosh for a vivid evening of contemporary music at The Cotton
Factory. We begin with the light-hearted wit of Robert Rival’s Scherzo
for Chamber Orchestra. Christina Volpini’s As within, so without offers a moment of soft contemplation of shadows and light. Musical structures are explored with Scott Good’s Variations for Chamber Orchestra. We end with Adam Scime’s invigorating and psychedelic Undreaming Sleep’s Bright Land.

As part of this concert experience, visual artist Amy McIntosh
takes inspiration from Hamilton’s natural ecologies. Using cyanotype
printmaking, sculpture and video, the artistic work will focus on the
small things in nature that we overlook, that grow and become more
efficient over time, building up to large forms and creating complex
systems that nurture and sustain life.
