ManiFeste: Orchestral Reading 2017

Sarah was selected to participate in IRCAM’s ManiFeste Academy 2017, to write a short sketch for orchestra using non-traditional orchestral writing. As she was beginning work on a new commission for UPROAR ensemble (for premiere in 2018), she presented sketches titled mind the gap, which then formed the basis of the work for UPROAR. These initial sketches were workshopped by the Orchestre Philharmonique de Radio France (cond. Pierre-André Valade), and overseen by composer Toshio Hosokawa.
