What's next...

Interference Patterns takes place on 3rd November at Kings Place, when we'll present the world premieres of four audio-visual collaborations, combining film and live music performed by the acclaimed Ensemble Matisse. Created by 4 pairs of composers and film-makers, this specially commissioned program is a bold exploration of the creative interplay between music and film, showing artistic diversity from abstract animation to the exploration of natural visual effects and everyday sounds. Our creative pairs have wrestled with imposing boundaries for themselves in order to have the freedom to create something truly collaborative, that could not have come about any other way. We’re thrilled to also present the latest work by Jan Vriend that explores this idea: freedom cannot exist without boundaries. Jan has written Degrees of Freedom for Ensemble Matisse; it seeks to test the boundaries to breaking point. Tickets available on the Kings Place website

All our events are followed by drinks and lively post-performance debate in the bar. The informal atmosphere and an audience mixture of curious public, emerging composers and musicians, music publisers, writers and agents, well known composers and musicians leads to new connections, ideas and a fuller undersatanding of the work performed.

  

'It’s wonderful that contemporary music has another champion in London – especially one so committed to commissioning – and New Dots has found an effective formula for presenting its new works. 4/5 stars.'

Paul Kilbey (Bachtrack)

More than just music

At every Sounds of the New event you can stay to discuss what you've heard over a drink with the composers and performers, or just relax with friends in the bar
