Ghosts: new music with history

This concert features new music by Warwick Blair and Tim Ewers with the music often linked directly to pieces by earlier composers and performers, such as Beethoven, Chopin, Puccini and Billie Holiday.

Warwick Blair is a visiting composer from New Zealand who has been working with year 1 and 2 students on a project called 'Feet of Clay', which creates performances of different versions of the 'Hurrian Hymn' - the earliest ever found notated piece of music found in Mesopotamia on clay tablets, written in cuneiform and dating from around 1400 BC.

Tim Ewers has worked at Kingston University since 1995, initially as a research assistant and part-time lecturer, then as academic mentor to AHRC Fellow in Performing Arts. In 2010, he was appointed Director of Studies for Music and in 2014 was awarded the Senior Fellowship of the Higher Education Academy. In 2015, he became Associate Professor of Music.

They will be joined by Mimi Doulton (soprano), Meredith White (piano) and Kate Ryder (piano).

This event is free for students.
