Artistic Director Chris Swaffer on Auricle’s ‘Re-Write’:
“Our project features work for classical chamber ensemble but by musicians from the worlds of rock and folk, allowing audiences to discover new facets of an artist via a totally different genre. Alongside established and published names like Jonny Greenwood and Steve Reich, we felt it important to commission and promote a new voice and we are delighted to be collaborating with Sarah Hayes. She is an extraordinarily versatile musician and her enthusiasm for cross-genre projects make her a perfect fit for Auricle.”
