Join composer Catherine Lamb to get between the notes, and explore the exciting musical world of Rational Intonation. Whilst many of us know music as the notes on the piano keyboard, there is a whole world of sound that exists, if we just find another way to hear it. Drawing on maths and physics, Rational Intonation, is a method of creating new tools for music making and composing, opening up new possibilities for sound creation. Catherine is joined on stage by experimental trombone duo, RAGE Thormbones, and online from Berlin, Iraqi-British multi-instrumentalist and composer Khyam Allami, whose research explores the intersection of tuning and music technology.
