Meet Ned McGowan
Meet Ned McGowan, the composer responsible for the name of our next show! Ned is an American composer and flutist based in Amsterdam, and Rubiks' percussionist Kaylie was lucky enough to meet him twice last year - at Classical:NEXT in Rotterdam and again at Eighth Blackbird's Creative Lab in the US. From Kaylie:
"While at the Blackbird Lab, Iniquitous Creatures was the earworm everyone was singing all the time! It's dark and driving and funky, drawing on Ned's studies of South Indian rhythmic structures and extended techniques that make all of the instruments as percussive as possible - so it's a no-brainer that I loved this piece straight away!"
