Transience: [Switch~] commissions Anna-Louise Walton
The [Switch~ Ensemble] commissions "Hapax legomenon" for mixed sextet to be premiered in New York City with a subsequent 4K digital release.
[Switch~] first collaborated with composer Anna-Louise Walton during the summer of 2016, when we performed her piece Jökulsárlón at the VIPA festival in Valencia, Spain. As a student composer, this was one of Walton’s first major public performances. We enjoyed the piece so much, we have continued to include it in our repertoire. Since then, Anna has kept in touch with various [Switch~ Ensemble] members, collaborating on small projects, and discussing the possibility of a larger piece for the ensemble. Now in the early stages of her professional career, this commission from [Switch~] would be a significant opportunity for Walton, provide an opportunity to work closely and cement our collaborative relationship.
