Forest Swords commissioned by Immix Ensemble
Having achieved critical acclaim for his trio of releases, Dagger Paths, Engravings and Compassion, and subsequently toured the world to capacity audiences, Barnes’ attention has shifted towards the creation of more bespoke, multidisciplinary practice. Barnes will work alongside the team at Metal, and Erased Tapes’ signees Immix Ensemble to develop Trespassing. This work will be a conceptual work exploring the ‘future sonic landscape of cities’, a deviation from his typical points of inspiration rooted in the ancient past. This 15 minute work will be performed by Barnes and the ensemble, made up of 6 ‘world class’ traditional instrumentalists.
