Portishead Reworked

In September 2016 I was commissioned by Biblioteek Productions to rearrange 3 tracks by the band Portishead for string quartet as part of their groundbreaking Co/Mission initiative.
It reimagines intelligent and cult popular music for classical instrumentation and idiom. It aims to appeal to a younger, more trendy Classical audience and bridge the gap between genres. 


The performance took place at the Young Blood Gallery in Cape Town, South Africa.

My new string quartet "November" and some film excerpts were performed too in addition to works by Adrian More, another young South African Composer.  Sadly, I couldn't attend but the event was apparently a resounding success.
Kudos to Biblioteek for their continued dedication to protecting the future of Classical Music in SA.
