Adrian Dunbar will curate a specially commissioned presentation of The Waste Land to mark the 50th Anniversary Year of the death of the poet T S Eliot. In support, newly composed music evoking the era of the poem, the 1920s, will intersplice the text complimented by images.
The Waste Land is a suite for improvising quintet, serving as an interpolation and network of connections within the spaces of T.S. Eliot's text and the embedded film element. The music was composed for Alex Bonney on trumpet and electronics, Nick Roth on saxophone and features the Elliot Galvin Trio, with Tom McCredie and Simon Roth.
