Dr Liz Johnson, with Jack McNeill (clarinet): Scintilla - Shape-shifting from the concert platform into the realms of theatre: the collaborative processes involved in creating a new work for clarinettist, live electronics and dancer.

Composer Liz Johnson and clarinettist Jack McNeill discuss their ambitious new work-in-progress Scintilla. Weaving layers of poetry, music, live electronics and breathing together, Scintilla creates a complex sound environment which will become a staged dance work exploring the inner landscape of the mind. The creative processes of the collaboration will be explored, with reference to film footage from rehearsals. Jack will perform live extracts and other recent clarinet repertoire.
