#3 Emily Hall

#3 Emily Hall

Playing tracks by

Instrumental, Eternity, I Am Alone, Not Just Milk, Field Of Snow and more.

Welcome all to episode #3 of excuse the mess.
I take a trip to Stroud to meet Emily Hall, a really brilliant contemporary classical composer. We potter about the local countryside and discuss her music including her upcoming release, 'Life Cycle' (Bedroom Community) a song cycle about motherhood and how that album was part of a pivotal moment in her compositional approach. We discuss her background and previous album 'Folie à Deux'. We also discuss a very importing topic, the equality imbalance for women working in music. We reference a great article in The Quietus, written by Grace Banks (titled: How Studios Subliminally Silence Women).

***There is a separate episode where we get in depth about this subject over lunch.

Like always, write a piece of music together in the same day. For that we used her totally unique Electromagnetic Harp.

Enjoy!
