Graham has been commissioned by Sioned Williams to write a new work for Camac's new instrument, the concert midiharp. The 16 minute work is a concerto of sorts and was performed with the BBC Symphony Orchestra at the premiere on 26 January 2011 at Maida Vale, London and broadcast on 2 february 2011.
The new work uses vocal samples which are triggered by plucking the strings. Each string produces a different vocal trigger.next
The vocal samples are all taken from political speeches, mainly by Amercian politicians.
I am very grateful to www.leadingtowar.com for their help and agreement in using their audio.previous
