Award-winning experimental vocal trio juice and jazz/classical quintet Tangent (featuring BBC Radio 3 New Generation Artist Trish Clowes) present a programme which shows off their humour, ingenuity, wit and talent, and which draws on classical, world music, jazz, folk, pop, improvisation and theatre.
At the heart of the evening, is a brand-new work by renowned young composer Luke Styles, currently Glyndebourne’s Young Composer In Residence. Setting a native Canadian folk tale, the piece blends the worlds of contemporary classical music, jazz and improvisation in a quirky and playful story telling. Style’s work is a commission for the New Music Biennial, which will present a series of 20 brand new music commissions to audiences across the UK in 2014, including showcases in London and Glasgow coinciding with the Commonwealth Games. Lancaster will be the first venue to host the premiere of the work.

This theatrical new work by Luke Styles will feature experimental vocal trio Juice and Trish Clowes’ jazz/classical ensemble Tangent, performing alongside three live dancers. Blurring the boundaries between dancer and musician, this evocative piece will retell a Native Canadian folk tale in a playful, highly dynamic way.
“I’m thrilled to have the chance to create a new work for such dynamic forces as Juice, Tangent and dancers. The exposure and performance platform for this as part of the New Music Biennial only increase the excitement I have to compose something virtuosic, lyric, energised and with a touch of improvisation.” Luke Styles
“Juice are thrilled to have been selected for the New Music Biennial! It will be a huge pleasure to present our piece in Glasgow and at London’s Southbank. We’re really looking forward to collaborating with Luke, Trish Clowes and Tangent, and working with a choreographer for the first time.” Juice Vocal Ensemble
