14 November, 2020, 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm

This is an online event.

In this streamed online performance, Ensemble Thing will present Systems_Theory, a meditation for cello, electronics and video performed by Emily De Simone. This performance will reflect upon the physical self and our connections to nature through music and video and includes work by composers Thomas Butler, Shona Mackay, Emily De Simone and John De Simone.

The programme also includes a screening of Hannah Imlach’s artist film Fieldwork, which documents a series of sculptural “instruments” inspired by peatland ecology and restoration in the Flow Country (Caithness and Sutherland). This will be followed by a Q&A session with the composers and performer, moderated by Dr Jonathan Hicks, University of Aberdeen.

Ensemble Thing are a new music ensemble based in Glasgow, founded in 2004 by John De Simone.

The online premiere of Systems_Theory will be available on Ensemble Thing’s YouTube channel. The video will be named ‘systems_theory’ and available at 18:00 on Saturday 14 November.
