Sound Intermedia

The London Sinfonietta and Southbank Centre explore the music of George Benjamin, showcasing his wide range of influences from electronics through to new acoustic techniques.

Antara, composed after studies at IRCAM, is a meshing of the electronic sounds of Peruvian panpipes, accompanied by an unlikely instrumental ensemble of flutes, trombones, strings and two anvils.
