The creation of multifaceted guitarist Sean Shibe, Utter Filth creates a soundworld through the distinct blend of guitar, flute, and viola, juxtaposing and contrasting music from over five centuries.
Two modern works for trio form the conceptual and aesthetic pillars of the programme, while ancient pieces by Francesco Landini and Martin Codax are deconstructed. Radio static muddies, and woozy cassette tapes scratch, crunch and whisper. This is the first outing of this radical reimagining of works that have never before shared a programme.
