Huddersfield Contemporary Music Festival (hcmf//) 2023 opens on our main stage with the UK Premiere of PERSONHOOD.
Written by Jennifer Walshe and performed by Oslo Sinfonietta and accordion soloist Andreas Borregaard, this new and overwhelming piece explores the notion of “personhood” and what it means to be a person at a time when our every moment is under surveillance, mined and monetised by the devices we have extended our consciousness into.
