Fast Gold Butterflies

Programme

A special location-specific project, put together for Huddersfield Contemporary Music Festival, gathering works by Pete Harden and Matt Wright in the industrial and heady space of the Magic Rock Brewery:

Netherlands-based Ensemble Klang strive to keep sound from finding a shape, making sure it never stagnates into one single style. A virtuosic group with curatorial interests – they work closely with composers, and also run their own label – here they join forces with composer and sound artist Matt Wright. With compositions for acoustic and electronic instrumentation, Wright threads together his work as a composer with hours spent moonlighting at clubs. Alongside his pieces, the ensemble deliver likeminded music from member Pete Harden. An artist whose music links together natural and mechanical ecosystems, Harden’s piece Guiyu Guitars becomes its own setting, his instruments hanging on venue walls in a performed sound installation.”
