Premiere: Sour Morning Crimson Birmingham, UK 8th February

Their performances span the possibilities of the combination from organ with stereo fixed media sound, to organ with live diffusion, organ with live electronics and performances incorporating live notation and improvisation. This has included collaborations with many composers taking innovative approaches to technology, and with visual artists and poets and many invitations to present new perspectives on the organ at festivals and conferences. In 2014 they performed a tour of the UK, supported by the leading UK charity for New Music, Sound and Music, and since then they have performed widely throughout the UK and Europe.

Lauren Redhead and Alistair Zaldua have worked together as a duo since 2012, performing music for organ and electronics, with a further focus on contemporary experimental music, graphic and extended notation for the organ, and live and interactive electronic interfaces.

On February 8th 2020 they give the premiere of Ní Ríain’s Sour Morning Crimson as part of Vox Humana at Ideas of Noise Festival in Birmingham, UK.
