Bach Reworkd for Spitalfields Festival
Joe Cutler has been involved as composer/performer in a unique filmed project entitled Bach Reworkd, commissioned by Spitalfields Festival with support from PRSF. Matt Belcher has created a one-hour film in which four composer/performers perform a piece by Bach as well as a commissioned response. This new film by Matt Belcher features interviews and performances from Philip Herbert, Zoe Martlew, Howard Skempton as well as Joe Cutler. Joe performs Bach’s Gigue from the D minor sonata, as well as his response entitled Ghost Chorales. The new film will be screened at the Genesis Cinema on Sunday 11 July as part of Spitalfields Festival as well as a remote home viewing on Monday 5th July.
Just Passing Through film
Joe’s commission from Seoul National University, Just Passing Through, has been released on Youtube in a film version. The performance features Hwa Jong Park (piano) with Seoul National University Contemporary Music Ensemble. The film interweaves the piece in performance, with footage from Seoul filmed during the last year.
The project featured composers from Royal Birmingham Conservatoire and Curtis Institute with additionally filmed pieces from David Ludwig, Nick Olsen, Michael Wolters and Elizabeth Younan.
Just Passing Through is proudly available for perusal and purchase through our website as well as other works by Joe Cutler. Ghost Chorales will be added to Joe Cutler’s catalogue at Composers Edition in due course.
