Black Glass Ensemble

Black Glass Ensemble

About Black Glass Ensemble

Located in the beguiling liminal territory between contemporary classical and experimental music, Black Glass combines the cream of Scotland’s chamber players with longstanding pioneers of the UK’s avant-garde electronic underground.

The result of this fusion is an emotionally resonant new music that challenges the senses, confounds expectations and breaks open new sonic ground.

Black Glass Ensemble are: Michael Begg (scores, samples, data feeds, erosions); Ben Ponton (receivers, recordings, forensics); Clea Friend (cello); Aisling O’Dea (violin); Julia Lungu (violin); Neil Cuthbertson (trumpet); Jen Cuthbertson (French horn); Douglas Caskie (tuned and bespoke percussion)

Support comes from Glasgow-based Irish composer - and Liminal Nights performer - Linda Buckley.

Presented as part of Michael Begg’s LIMINAL programme by The Queen’s Hall in association with Omnempathy, and with support from Creative Scotland and the Hope Scott Trust

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Black Glass Ensemble are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment. All information (whether in text or photographs) is given in good faith but should not be relied upon as being a statement of representation or fact.
