In collaboration with Sounds from the Other City, Samarbeta approached EEIH to take on this incredible opportunity to write a specific piece for the BBC Philharmonic ensemble.
The EEIH trio form an ensemble composing and performing music for solid-body electric guitar, percussion and other instruments, they have worked within many different genres and are passionate about the music they create. They have a wide variety of skill sets which make them ideal to take on this challenge.
The BBC Philharmonic is an internationally renowned broadcasting orchestra based in Salford. It supports and nurtures emerging talent from across the North West, working closely with Salford City Council and other partners to provide unique opportunities like this one for musicians of all ages to work with players from the orchestra.
EEIH wrote the composition and worked with specific musicians from the BBC Philharmonic, including a harpist, a saxophonist and a string duo. The piece was rehearsed at the BBC Philharmonic Studio in MediaCityUK and debuted at Vimto Gardens on Sunday May 3rd as part of SFTOC, performed twice on the day to a limited audience capacity.
