12 HOURS Endurance Performance 4 PM FRI 14 FEB


A new work by Catherine Kontz for soprano Rosie Middleton
Somerset House
14 February 2020 . 16h00-20h00

12 HOURS is a marathon piece for voice and electronics which explores endurance as a compositional concept and performative strategy. In an immersive staging that utilises experimental sound technology, the performer explores the limits of the human voice in an unbroken durational performance.

The research is presented at Somerset House in collaboration with King’s College London, and with the generous support of Snape Meltings, Help Musicians UK, and Arts Council England.
