In Place

A song-cycle for voice and ensemble

In Place explores a sense of place in the British Isles; how it informs our cultural identity; shapes our language and dialects; provides both solace and stimulation, and contains histories both universal and personal. It speaks to all corners of the British Isles; Scotland, Wales, Northern Ireland, Republic of Ireland and England. It also crosses art-form boundaries.

Composer Colin Riley is collaborating with writers for whom place is a recurring theme – Robert Macfarlane, Paul Farley, Selina Nwulu, Nick Papadimitriou, Jackie Morris, Daljit Nagra, Richard Skelton and Autumn Richardson. This specially created writing, woven together with other elements – place names, folk songs, other found texts – forms the core of a set of new songs for vocalist Melanie Pappenheim and ensemble: Ruth Goller (bass guitar), Kate Halsall (piano/keyboards), Nic Pendlebury (viola) and Stephen Hiscock (percussion).
