Seven Souls, or 164 Years

An interdisciplinary piece for string quartet and spoken word by Anthony Tidd

  • Project Created By

    Anthony Todd

    Over the next eighteen years Anthony attended the Newham Academy of Music (U.K), Guild Hall (U.K), Thurrock College of Music (U.K), and Goldsmiths University (U.K), but (in his opinion) his true music education took place during his 24 year (and counting) stint with jazz alto saxophonist and MacArthur genius, Steve Coleman.

Seven Souls, or 164 Years

An interdisciplinary piece for string quartet and spoken word by Anthony Tidd

Seven Souls, or 164 Years will be an exciting new work for string quartet composed by Anthony Tidd, featuring Philadelphia performance poet extraordinaire Ursula Rucker and violin virtuoso Kristin Lee.

This piece will give voice to the now voiceless as a result of white supremacy inspired violence.

In terms of composition I hope to create a sound, which stays true to melodic, harmonic and rhythmic language drawn from my many years of working within jazz, hip-hop, etc, but which expresses this sound within a format suitable for string quartet.
