peter broderick - Music For Contemporary Dance
Music For Contemporary Dance packages together Peter Broderick's compositions for soundtracking choreography. The two scores compiled for this release are Music For Falling From Trees and Music For Congregation, the first being a suite for piano and strings previously released by Erased Tapes to great acclaim (on this very site, among a good many others), while the latter is a new work, commissioned by artists Kit Monkman and Tom Wexler, aka KMA. Congregation is said to be "The world's first ever ballet designed, choreographed and composed entirely for pedestrian performers" and is set to debut simultaneously in Shanghai and Bournemouth before further performances at Tate Britain. After the swooningly grand and emotive Falling From Trees, the score to Congregation feels more fully developed in terms of its arrangements and perhaps slightly more experimental in tone too. As you'll no doubt have come to expect from Broderick, his take on contemporary classical music never fails to be accessible, and sure enough, this four-part cycle is ravishingly lovely to the ear, peaking with the almost Sigur Ros-like post-rock ascent of 'Part 3: Differences'. Highly recommended.
