Luigi Nono


During the conversations in the lead up to P.Inman 's visit to Manchester, we discovered a common interest in the Italian Socialist avant-garde composer Luigi Nono http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Luigi_Nono . You can hear some samples if you are not familiar with his work at

When Peter read, the resonances of Nono seemed very clear to me and got me thinking: I am wondering is there anyone else out there who draws on or is influenced by or responds to Nono. At this stage, I am not sure what this will lead to - maybe a collaboration, maybe a publication, maybe a celebration, an event or even a festival. Peter and I are developing ideas for new works, are you interested in being involved?
