Andrew Hamilton and slow phrases piece

Andrew Hamilton

Our tour to Ireland is getting very close and rehearsals are going well. One of the highlights of the trip will be  performing our new commission by Andrew Hamilton, slow phrases piece.

We asked him for a few thoughts about it:

“Often it takes months to find material that resonates but with this piece it came in a sudden moment, and I wrote it down immediately.

I wanted to keep the clarity of this initial idea going so there is a very straightforward process, nothing is hidden.”

If you would like some more background information on Andrew, here are some links to try.
