American composer John Supko layers samples of experimental poetry over long melodic lines to create his immersive and poignant This Window Makes Me Feel. Kate Moore’s Spin Birdstretches the soloist’s mastery of technique, pushing closer to the exhilaration of flight. Julian Day’s much anticipated and new work Low Horizons layers the ensemble against a warped electronic version of itself to powerful effect. Evan Zyporyn’s Tsmindao Ghmerto reimagines an ancient Georgian Hymn for vocalising bass clarinettist to colourful and arresting effect, while Witold Lutoslawski’s Subito is a brief burst of fiery virtuosity and stark emotional contrasts. Finally, the ensemble expands to a sextet formation for the premiere of two new works of Intercurrent’s own Lachlan Skipworth.
