18 November 2019 Entrance is free

A composer and electronic musician based in London, Silvia Rosani writes music and designs systems that can be used outside of the academic musical bubble. Interested in challenging ‘social inequality’ in composition, her recent work has involved installation-based presentations of music that can involve the audience, making ensemble members of them. In White Masks, Rosani invites audience members to play new hybrid instruments she has designed, for use by either professional musicians or interested, unskilled listeners. By handing over improvisation duties to her listeners, Rosani encourages unlikely interactions and a shattering of artistic borders. White Masks is a work that crosses thresholds.
