Juxtavoices was formed in 2010 by composer Martin Archer and writer Alan Halsey. Since then the group has been surprising, delighting and occasionally alarming audiences across the region with their performances, often in public spaces. Comprising both trained and untrained voices, the group uses fixed texts and structures for its compositions, but no specific pitches are ever written and through use of improvised elements no two performances of a given piece are ever the same.
For this performance of Guardian Weekend Remix, a piece which utilises a visual work by artist Michael Szpakowski as its score, choir members will direct the performance among themselves using text messages as the piece progresses.
