For Curiouser, Octandre Ensemble’s second collaboration with New Dots, we invited three composers to create 20-minute sets of music written by themselves and/or others. We held workshops at The Asylum, Peckham inSeptember, and a final performance in November. All three composers wrote original pieces for the occasion, one even commissioned a fourth composer. Other composers featured were Harrison Birtwistle, Christopher Fox, Ben Graves, Kaija Saariaho, Maurice Ravel (arr. Illean) and Peter Wiegold.
