BBC Radio 3 Open Ear Concert

News | Richard performs live on BBC Radio 3 using his custom hand-cranked touch screen music box 'Twinklr'
November 7, 2016

On Friday I was down in London at St. John at Hackney, performing live at BBC Radio 3’s Open Ear Concert. The show was live on air, and you can listen back here.

I was performing using my new Modern Music Box, Twinklr. You can read more about that here.

I played two tracks:

1. A live solo reworking of one of my string quartet pieces, Night Sun, from Vigils.

2. An improvisation, starting with a blank screen on Twinklr, adding notes as I went along. That was a nice feeling – creating a sparse and innocent tune on the spot in a darkened church full of people.
