Electro Lieder sees pianist Brieley Cutting and soprano Judit Molnár of Fragments Ensemble bring a wildly expressive art song performance which blends classical with the avant-garde. For this production they have invited collaboration with experimental composers Mark Oliveiro and Vincent Giles, as well as with selected new and emerging composers. Songs from composers such as Schubert, Richard Strauss and Bartók are presented in a re-imagined context as they are combined alongside new material and merged together with spliced and distorted connective tissue. Voice, piano and poetry meet, true to art song, with this expanded upon with explorative live electronics and interactive digital visuals, producing a continuous 55min experience.With this production’s inception being in the modern world, these musicians could not help but be influenced by considerations of continuous night-time and possible dystopia. Yet, hope remains, with feelings of warmth and the sensation of light beautifully appearing in the cracks.Electro Lieder is an experimental multimedia fusion, born of these musicians’ collective, artistic response to recent world experiences. Their craft allows them to draw on historical and culturally diverse experience as they connect the past to the present and allow for imagination of the future.
