Next Wednesday, Cameron Biles-Liddell will be hosting a live Q&A with the composer Angela Slater. This is a new event by New Sounds of Manchester and will be a chance for composers and performers to get to know more about her music, as well as ask any questions about being a freelance composer. Do Come along!
Angela has asked participants to listen to the following before the talk:

Eye o da Hurricane.
Angela Elizabeth Slater is a UK-based composer. She is also the founder and artistic director of the Illuminate series. In her AHRC-funded PhD in composition at the University of Nottingham, Angela developed an interest in incorporating different aspects of the natural world into her compositions. She has been working on a series of works that engage with the natural world, musically mapping certain aspects into the fabric of her music.
Angela has worked with many professional and amateur musicians, and enjoys working with both groups with equal passion and enthusiasm. Recently she has worked with the BSO, Bozzini Quartet, Assembly project, Aurea Quartet, BBC Singers, and Psappha, amongst others. Angela is passionate about the promotion of new music for amateur and professionals and particularly about raising the profile of female musicians and composers.
