Launched in October 2003, Open Score comprises an annual call for pieces, collaborations with post graduate composition students, and commissions. Of this evening's works, the Pinnock and Venables are a result of COMA London's successful partnership with the Royal Academy of Music; the Nyman was commissioned and the new work by COMA member Howard Jones arose from a call for pieces on the theme of ‘Spaces and Places'. The performance will be conducted by Gregory Rose .
The evening's programme will include: Michael Nyman In C Interlude; Philip Venables Dutch Courage; Naomi Pinnock Four Humours; Howard Jones The Illusion of Progress. Starting off the evening, the Moving Tone Musicians will perform original instrumental compositions and songs, using acoustic instruments, soundscapes, percussion and voice.
