The Vonnegut Collective


St Ninian's Church


Saturday 21 May, 2016 - 13.00


The eccentric English composer, Cornelius Cardew was passionate about involving people in his music, young/old, trained/untrained, and Autumn60 is one piece which highlights this brilliantly.┬áIn this event the Vonnegut Collective will perform this baffling but beautiful work alongside a brand new composition – Spring16 – devised, written and performed by young people from within the community. Spring16 will draw inspiration and compositional techniques from Cardew’s Autumn60.

The Vonnegut Collective is an open form new music ensemble based in Manchester. Their output includes sound exploration through improvisation and collaborations with composer-performers, artists and dancers.
