About Unquiet: Carmen Villain and Manchester Camerata Ensemble

Something has to change.

Unquiet is a new music series for the brave and the curious. Featuring new commissions from Carmen Villain (world premiere) and AFRODEUTSCHE, and the music of Bryce Dessner, Hildur Gudnadottir, Philip Glass and Mica Levi, Unquiet will include live performances from Carmen Villain with the Manchester Camerata Ensemble whilst Robert Ames and Ben Corrigan perform CARBS. Taking inspiration from their robust history of collaborations and passion for electronic and classical music, CARBS creates sound that’s both cinematic and danceable, built on lush harmony, catchy patterns and driving rhythms that form an outer space trance.

Commissioned by Manchester Camerata and NEWFORM

and curated by Robert Ames, with thanks to Composer Magazine and co-commissioners Norwich Arts Centre.

Manchester Camerata: ★★★★★ “It doesn’t get much better than this” (The Independent)

Robert Ames: “Robert Ames is a super-connector in modern music” (The Guardian)

Carmen Villain: “A triumph of quiet beauty” (The Fader)
