Everything Everything presents: Chaos to Order
Emerging Musicians In Residence
Manchester Central Library
"Ahead of Chaos to Order, Brighter Sound gave a shout out to musicians aged 18 to 25 who wanted to be a part of the Everything Everything Central Library residency. In collaboration with Liam Frost and Sara Lowes, the chosen musicians set out on an intense week-long project of writing and performing.
The musicians described what a unique opportunity the residency offered, not only the space and inspiration to write, but the chance to collaborate and have their material heard in a radically different live venue.
At the end of the week, the group performed their original compositions for the public. The multi-layered piece ranged the musical spectrum, from dream-pop, to raucous folk, to a crazy round performed with children’s toys, to rap, to soaring vocals, and back again. The crowd who assembled to hear the performance on Saturday lunchtime in the Library Café were drawn in by the music and stayed, afterwards praising the professionalism, variety and sheer inventiveness of the work. We are all looking forward to seeing more of them in future."
