Emulsion was founded by Trish Clowes in 2012 – and the event will also tie into her own work.

“I am very excited to present this seventh edition of Emulsion, which is also acting as a key case study for my PhD research,” she said.

“We have wanted to work with Alexander Hawkins for some time so we’re thrilled to have him as our special guest. As well as performing with us, he will present some of his own music and a work by the legendary composer-saxophonist Anthony Braxton.

“I am also excited to present Emulsify on 3rd November. This new immersive event, debuted at Emulsion VI, will allow audience members to explore morphing between the roles of listener and performer, and is a product of the illuminating research I have been conducting with local audiences.”

One of the by-products of the festivals has been the Emulsion Sinfonietta, which has premiered 17 works so far.

Tickets for this year’s event are available online.
