Twelve-piece contemporary music group, Icebreaker, launch their new project based on the idea of recycling, with five new works and a classic. Ed Bennett’s Suspect Device recycles the eponymous song by Stiff Little Fingers, Roy Carroll uses feedback loops made from the sounds of people’s instruments, Matt Wright uses sampling to do his recycling live, and Paul Whitty recycles a whole piece from Icebreaker’s existing repertoire (Michael Gordon’s Yo Shakespeare), but with a startlingly different effect.
