Bristol Beacon & St George’s present a major new work by Hannah Peel, commissioned by and performed with Paraorchestra. The Unfolding takes a cyclical journey from the very atoms of human existence and the awakening of life, through to our eventual re-folding back into the elements.

This first live performance of Hannah Peel and Paraorchestra’s album The Unfolding, recorded in March 2021 and due for release in Spring 2022, features a glorious 14-piece ensemble of acoustic and electronic instruments as well as human voice for a transportive, playful, and otherworldly sonic experience. The Unfolding follows the huge success of Hannah’s 2020 album release Fir Wave.

“feel like you’re in a flying dream, high above broad and strange vistas”

The first part of the evening’s double bill features a new commission from Bristol-based composer and Associate for Paraorchestra, Lloyd Coleman, in a work inspired by the wondrous beauty and complexity of algorithms – on every aspect of today’s world.
