Final Rehearsals for the Raise Your Voice Ensemble

That’s it. Today saw the final rehearsal before Sunday night’s Raise Your Voice Ensemble début gig. The fantastic programme of new Mancunian music is sounding great and everyone at Raise Your Voice is really excited. We hope to see you at Centro Bar on Sunday night to share in our excitement and enthusiasm!

Here’s a photo from Monday’s rehearsal of Richard Scott with the Raise Your Voice Ensemble. Richard is using a unique system built from a Buchla Lightning II infra-red MIDI controller and two Nintendo Wii remotes coupled to software by STEIM, a music technology research and development centre in Amsterdam, to manipulate sample recordings of our ensemble as part of a directed improvisation.
