Composed by and performed with Hannah Peel
Conducted by Charles Hazlewood

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.  

Hannah Peel and Paraorchestra’s forthcoming album The Unfolding was recorded in March 2021 and is due for release on Real World Records in Spring 2022. This live performance 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 2021 Mercury Award nominated album Fir Wave.

The first part of the evening’s double bill features a new commission from Bristol-based composer and Associate Music Director for Paraorchestra, Lloyd Coleman. Latent Bloom is a work inspired by the wondrous beauty and complexity of algorithms – on every aspect of today’s world. The piece takes it title from a recent work by award-winning photographer Jack Latham, in which the organic nature of algorithms is visualised through manipulated images of flowers.
