In The Darkness Let Me Dwell : Kirkman Quartet

Profound Sound 2020: Kirkman Quartet: In Darkness Let Me Dwell

Launching the festival is composer John Woolrich, who has recently moved to Folkestone. "Like all the most interesting composers, John Woolrich's work is a kaleidoscopic mixture: of spiky wit, lightness, dark menace, on canvasses that are hugely ambitious or delicately miniature. Like one of his anecdotes, I would never predict how a Woolrich piece will unfold; he's the master of surprise and variation.” (Joanna MacGregor)

In Darkness Let Me Dwell is performed by the Kirkman Quartet and takes its inspiration from the Italian painter Carlo Levi.

‘If a straight line is the shortest distance between two fated and inevitable points, digressions will lengthen it; and if these digressions become so complex, so tangled and tortuous, so rapid as to hide their own tracks, who knows -- perhaps death may not find us, perhaps time will lose its way, and perhaps we ourselves can remain concealed in our shifting hiding places.’

John is a local music curator and launched his first season of Folkestone Early Music last year at Customs House Folkestone.
