Juxtavoices (Choir)

Audiences are unfailing surprised by the Juxtavoices sound. Some try to name-check composers in the avant-garde tradition but none quite fit. Some shudder at the dark theatricality, some hear the humour, some are outraged while others feel an irresistible urge to join the ranks. This is singing on the edge of not-singing or vice versa, a music only previously heard in a sound-poet’s dreams. Directed by Martin Archer and Alan Halsey, Juxtavoices uniquely combines the outer reached of improvised music and innovative poetry.
