A daring work that combines chamber music repertoire with new music and visuals; creating music to be looked at… not just listened to.
“flashes of inspired synchronicity that fired the senses into overdrive, even euphoria.”
Optical Identity features some of the best contemporary music from across the globe; Kevin Volans’ White Man Sleeps with its South African influence; Franghiz Ali Zadeh’s Mugam Sayagi focusing on a secret 16th century Islamic language, Rolf Wallin’s Phonotope I exploring the Chinese elements and Manual Override, a commission from Joby Talbot, best known for his work with The Divine Comedy, and as collaborator with Wayne McGregor in the award-winning Chroma.
“the piece provides a wonderful platform for the talents of the T'ang Quartet and for the stylish visual aesthetic of Theatre Cryptic.”
