Description

London Sinfonietta continues to nurture emerging talent as part of its innovative Blue Touch Paper scheme, which allows young composers the chance to develop their music with the LS players and collaborators without the immediate pressure of a public performance. Bold experiments and risk-taking in workshops and rehearsals allow composers to make big steps in developing their style and technique. Following in the footsteps of previous BTP composers Anna Meredith, Larry Goves and Dai Fujikura, Naomi Pinnock has been working with the ensemble and her mentor Beat Furrer to develop her new piece 'words'. This footage was recorded at her last workshop session prior to the premiere of 'words' at Southbank Centre, London, as part of the London Sinfonietta's 'In Portrait: Beat Furrer' event on 18 January 2011.
