New Music

Brian Ferneyhough’s music pushes performers to the very edge of technical and expressive limits. When it’s played by Kathryn Williams, his music transforms into jaw-dropping physical theatre. For this one-off collaboration, Kathryn’s fearless style will perfectly complement Bastard Assignments – four composer/performers whose appearances over the last few years have left audiences shocked, amused and ultimately amazed. Their performances blend experimental music with outrageous spoken word and brilliantly choreographed use of space. They’re impossible to define – so come and experience them for yourselves!

Also works by Timothy Cape, Larry Goves, Edward Henderson, Caitlin Rowley and Josh Spear.

About Kathryn Williams

Kathryn Williams is a flautist, composer, and researcher whose work focuses upon transgressing real or imagined limits of physical, musical, and extra-musical abilities through a series of collaborative performance projects. Currently, Kathryn’s work is centred around breathing and finding ways of overcoming asthma to more powerfully connect with her respiratory system. This has led to qualifying as a freediver and investigating ways to combine freediving into performance art and composition. Her project Coming Up for Air commissions pieces limited to a single breath and contains over 100 works, a collection recorded for release on Huddersfield Contemporary Records.

She has been featured at Kammer Klang, Huddersfield Contemporary Music Festival, Bendigo International Festival of Exploratory Music, Deep Minimalism Festival, and has performed at Aldeburgh Festival, Royaumont Abbey, LSO St. Luke’s, and broadcast on BBC Radio 3. A member of the contemporary music ensemble House of Bedlam, Kathryn has also performed with Distractfold Ensemble, Apartment House, Argonaut Ensemble, and Ensemble Voix Nouvelles. Kathryn has contributed to albums on Another Timbre (Ryoko Akama; Antoine Beuger; Federico Pozzer) and RVNG International (Oliver Coates’ Shelley’s on Zenn-La).

Kathryn has taught composition for National Youth Orchestra of Great Britain, creative practice for Britten-Pears Young Artist Programme and Aldeburgh Young Musicians, and given guest lectures for Royal Northern College of Music, Royal Birmingham Conservatoire, Carnegie Mellon University, and the Universities of Cambridge, Huddersfield, and York. She studied at the Royal Northern College of Music and is pursuing a PhD in Performance at University of Huddersfield with the supervision of Philip Thomas and Aaron Cassidy.
