"We speak not of the archaic
theological doctrine, whereby prayers are offered to dead
saints who may then intercede directly to God on our behalf.
We do, however, seek to steal a little of that image. Our
Intercessions are of a far more earthly nature, and occur not
in heaven, but in the austerely beautiful surroundings of St
Leonard’s Church, Shoreditch. Neither do we come this time to
pray, but to make sound. Sound surrounded by little pools of
silence. Sound from many ages, transplanted into strange and
unfamiliar contexts. The ghostly beauty of Johann Sebastian
Bach interceded by Free Improvisation: how strange… and
short Bartok duets for violin and viola, each interceded by
new music that is freshly created in the moment; and yet more
- music by Eugene Ysaye and contemporary
work by Christian Wolff all spliced up with
the silence , noise and unpredictable flutter of free
improvisation. A crucible of experimental juxtaposition."
