BBC Philharmonic - Laidlow & Howard - Silicon, Elliptics & Antisphere
As part of the RNCM’s Future Music Festival, we’re exploring the boundaries and intersections between science and art. Composers Robert Laidlow and Emily Howard join us with a pair of world premieres that delve into the wonderful outcomes of mixing music, maths, artificial intelligence (AI), and spirituality. Laidlow’s Silicon investigates the synergies between music and AI, examining its ability to answer and develop music. Meanwhile, Howard ponders maths, love and death in the intimate Elliptics with words by Michael Symmons Roberts. Conductor Vimbayi Kaziboni will be bringing tonight’s music to life.
