SPACED - Viols and Laptops

Liam Byrne’s solo performances frequently combine old viol music with new works written for him by such composers as David Lang, Nico Muhly and Edmund Finnis. In June 2017 he was commissioned by the V&A Museum to create a site-specific sound installation for their new Sackler Courtyard, which resulted in the eight-hour long piece Partials, an exploration of the space’s resonance derived entirely from upper partial harmonics played on the viol. Tonight’s programme features new works by Academy composition students.
