2017 … Tunnel Number Five Festival

Headphones highly recommended for these binaural recordings


Motherless Chil’

Motherless Chil’… 5.4mins


The first evenings concert, called Impact, featured the Ad Hoc Ensemble with Kabita Ghosh.

A highlight from this concert was Motherless Chil’… adapted from Carol Maillard’s arrangement of this traditional Negro spiritual. featuring Stevie Kyriacou as the Chil’ at one end of the tunnel & a Mother chorus near the other end. They gradually move towards each other from opposite ends of the tunnel, drawing on the tunnel’s natural delay and reverberation

Chaccone … 7.2mins

The 5th & final evenings concert called Digging Deep, featured Chaccone composed by Nick Tsaivos. Chaccone concluded our 2017 Underground Music Festival.

“Chaccone is one of the ‘elemental structures ‘ I first composed in 1993, and it has been following me around ever since. The chaccone is based on three melodic/tonal elements that nearly, but not quite resolve – this produces a vaguely hypnotic dance as the three elements unravel withih their own logic and timeframes.”
