A major new work by Hannah Peel, commissioned by and performed with Paraorchestra, The Unfolding takes a cyclical journey from the very atoms of human existence and the awakening of life, through to our eventual re-folding back into the elements.
This first live performance of Hannah Peel and Paraorchestra’s album The Unfolding, recorded in March 2021 and due for release in Spring 2022, features a glorious 14-piece ensemble of vocals, acoustic and electronic instruments for a transportive, playful, and otherworldly sonic experience. The Unfolding follows the huge success of Hannah’s 2020 album release Fir Wave.
an immensely reassuring piece of work, a reminder of how small we are in the bigger picture

The first part of the evening’s double bill features a new commission from Bristol-based composer and Associate Music Director for Paraorchestra, Lloyd Coleman. Latent Bloom is a work inspired by the wondrous beauty and complexity of algorithms – on every aspect of today’s world. The piece takes its title from a recent work by award-winning photographer Jack Latham, in which the organic nature of algorithms is visualised through manipulated images of flowers.
