Inspired by Britten's many arrangements of folk songs, this event takes the original songs that inspired him and asks six very different musicians to create their own interpretions. Bringing together Hot Chip's Alexis Taylor, Green Gartside of Scritti Politti, folk-singer Mara Carlyle, acoustic and electronic composer Anna Meredith, house and techno composer South London Ordnance, and Max de Wardener, whose work ranges from electronica to instrument making.
As with all Faster Than Sound events, the music performed will be created by the artists in a residency at Aldeburgh Music over the preceeding week, leading to a performance of work that is fresh, surprising and completely new.
Faster Than Sound is generously supported by the Paul Hamlyn Foundation
