As part of a series of programmes devoted to the work of Maryanne Amacher, and preceding the UK premiere performance of GLIA (2005), Amacher’s former collaborator Bill Dietz and musicologist Amy Cimini present a talk entitled Ghost Written Scenarios & Unnamed Sensibilities, contextualising GLIA within Amacher's body of work, and discussing her approach to installation and instrumentation.

Three years after Amacher's death in 2009, a group of her former collaborators joined forces under the name Supreme Connections to address the posthumous life of the composer’s work. As part of this group, Dietz and Cimini have sought to further the complexities and nuances of Amacher’s practice, its response to site, and her concept of ‘perceptual geography’ as an approach to composition. As well as exploring Amacher’s methods of staging works, Supreme Connections present talks, seminars and workshops activating the composer’s ideas.

The Maryanne Amacher programme commences on Thursday 30 May with a conversation between Dietz and Cimini followed by a screening of Charles Atlas’ Torse (1977).
