From October 14th to November 13th Metal musician Aneliya Avtandilova was our artist in residence on behalf of British Council’s UK-Russia Year of Music program. During her residency she composed, recorded and performed “Mass,” a secular-choral piece that responds to languages and phrases of specific localities. The performance of “Mass” was part of an event titled ’15 Minutes with…’ including performances by Daniel Thorne, George Maund and Forest Swords.
More information about the composition can be found on Aneliya’s website: https://www.aavtandilova.com/mass
The project was supported by The British Council, Metal, Rush, PRS for Music Foundation and Ministry for Foreign Affairs Russian Agency. Special thanks to Andrew Ellis, Andrew PM Hunt, Nina Franklin, Jon Davies, Kate Hazeldine, James Canty.
