Edit-point and the Gildas Quartet present Music for Strings and Electronics
Electronic music group Edit-Point, are embarking on their first UK tour alongside the Gildas Quartet. Their programme features music for strings and electronics exploring distinctive sonorities and sound worlds. These range from the careful amplification in George Crumb’s renowned Black Angels that highlights and magnifies tiny string sounds to Northern Irishman, Ed Bennett’s String Factory. In Bennett’s composition the violin takes on the role of protagonist amidst a dense and elaborate electronic part where pre-recorded violin material is transformed into industrial sounds. In between you can hear a myriad of approaches to the combination of strings and electronics.
