RITUAL IN TRANSFIGURED TIME is a 1946 film by Maya Deren, a surreal silent avant garde movie which inspired one of our two new commissions and the wider aesthetics of the whole programme. RITUAL is an acoustic, electronic and cinematic concert of contemporary chamber music, iconic and lesser known works from the early 20th Century. The concert explores relationships between sound and image, between old and new and between conventional and self-made musical instruments.
