Trio Atem (Manchester) presents three new pieces commissioned as part of their tenth birthday celebrations. Join them as they navigate bewildering labyrinths, assume extrovert vocal characters, and interpret textual stimuli in a performance that explores the intriguing sonic potential of the unusual flute-voice-cello combination.

Since forming in 2007 for a performance of Helmut Lachenmann’s temmA, Trio Atem has commissioned and premiered over 50 new compositions. Performance engagements include Kings Place, York Late Music, the BBS Philharmonic’s Ink Still Wet series, New Music North West, and university concert series across the UK. The ensemble has been in residence at Novars electroacoustic studieos (The University of Manchester), and given workshops for the younger generation of composers in a host of educational settings. Trio Atem has recorded on the another timbre label, and received funding for commissioning activities from the PRS for Music Foundation, RVW Trust, and Arts Council England.

Trio Atem is grateful to the Arts Council for funding their tenth birthday tour and commissions.
