Critically acclaimed Shiva Feshareki comes fresh from her success at BBC Proms broadcast from the Royal Albert Hall in London, to perform her experimental compositions live on stage at The Lowry. Fusing sonic sampling, contemporary club, dance and classical, her solo turntable performance with visuals will create delicate and mesmerising moments in sound. Expect deeply experimental sonic manipulations as the artist reimagines sound as she plays with space and perspective – not to be missed!
Her awards include BASCA British Composer for Innovation, Women Make Music PRS award and BBC/Guardian Young Composer of the year. Upcoming major works by the artist include a commission from the BBC Concert Orchestra, a brand-new composition for The EFG London Jazz Festival, and Featured Composer at London’s Spitalfields Festival in December 2018.
About the performance
Shiva Feshareki presents a highly physical, live turntable composition that she forms in the moment. Using her trademark turntabling techniques, she deconstructs a variety of sounds from club, dance, classical and drone into new forms and perspectives, using nothing other than the original vinyl material. Expect deeply experimental sonic manipulations that bend time and play with space and perspective, transforming a variety of sounds into new shapes that reveal its sculptural depths.
Audio-reactive visuals have been created by artist Helena Hamilton, and will have its first outing at this event.
