Matthew Herbert To Feature On Neue Meister Live Album
Berlin based classical label Neue Meister have announced their latest release- a 2CD compilation recorded live as part of a special concert 'Crossing Borders'.
Herbert's track, 'Further', is his emotive response to the current situation in Aleppo. The 11 minute recording was performed in total darkness and features an ambient soundscape of footsteps, water and whistles, which are later accompanied by an orchestra.
Other artists to have their compositions featured on the live album include Henrik Schwarz and the Israeli composer Gilad Hochman.
Neue Meister aim to provide a platform for modern composers such as Matthew and Henrik "to be able to tackle the issues upon which the concerts are themed".
