4* review in The Times for Joe Cutler’s ‘Elsewhereness’ ft. Emulsion Sinfonietta

Today Joe Cutler has released his album ‘Elsewhereness’ on NMC Recordings with a glowing 4* review from The Times!

There’s also a great mention of our Sinfonietta:

“Top prize here goes to the Emulsion Sinfonietta careening through ‘Karembeu’: not a piece that could ever be picked apart and then built up by anyone’s dubbing machine.” Geoff Brown

We are very happy to announce that Emulsion VI will be taking place in Shrewsbury in the form of a residency… there will be two workshops on March 18th and April 22nd (for local audiences) and a festival on 15th-16th June. More information will be announced shortly…

Back in December Emulsion was ecstatic to be there for Cevanne’s win at the BASCA British Composer Awards! Cevanne’s submission was her piece for the Emulsion Sinfonietta, ‘Muted Lines’, which was commissioned by Trish Clowes (to also feature on her album My Iris).

Here’s a video of the piece, being performed at Emulsion:
