On Friday 26th January 2018, my new string quintet Souq was premiered at the Kaleidoscope concert in Birmingham UK. Kaleidoscope is a project that brings together composers and performers in weekly workshops where we explore different approaches to improvisation. Over the course of 5 months, each composer developed a piece for the ensemble as a result of these workshops. The pieces do not only explore improvisation, but also draw on elements of folk music, allowing each composer to bring a personal touch to the music.
