Plus Minus presents an international programme of works focused on the ways and means of producing sound and harnessing its resonance. Sound sources include rice grains falling onto a variety of different surfaces, two amplified performers using extended vocal techniques, a piano modified by live electronics, and almost nothing: the “sound” of background noise.

A new work by Alex Hills especially written for the group joins music from experimental American composer Michael Pisaro (external link), the young Dane Simon Steen-Andersen (external link) and Italians Fausto Romitelli and Agostino Di Scipio (external link).
