Our tour took us to Centrala in Birmingham, the International Anthony Burgess Foundation in Manchester, and eventually to the Playground Theatre in London. Our London concert was set amongst sculptor Josie Spencer's exhibition Murmuration, with pianist George Fu, baroque ensemble La Vaghezza, and singer-wongwriter Elena Tonra.

The tour featured brand new music from Freya Waley-Cohen, William Marsey, Josephine Stephenson and the 3 composers selected from our recent call for scores, Joanna Ward, Robin Richards and Daniel Fardon; old music by Fontana, Castello, Bach, Rachmaninoff and Liszt. The different points on the tour had performances from Cinema, Aldous RH, and Elena Tonra.
