Water & Air is a work commissioned by Curated Place that brought together Norwegian composer Eyvind Gulbrandsen with a new ensemble from musicians currently studying at the RNCM - SHOAL Sound Art Collective. It is a new work for light, flute, clarinet, saxophone, harp and guitar that the ensemble and composer created through a series of residencies in partnership with Moving Classics (European Network for New Music). This performance is the world première in Hull as part of the Hull2017 City of Culture programme taking inspiration from the poem "At the Harbour Gates" by Adelle Stripe.

SHOAL are Rosalind Ridout (flute), Isobel Mortimer (clarinet), Callum Coomber (guitar), Lucy Nolan (harp) and Isobel Williams (saxophone). Brought together as a sound art collective through the original project they aim to make contemporary music that new audiences can respond to and feel part of. Through engaging cross-art collaboration with composers and artists, they want to commission new works which can tour, adapting each performance to make it relevant to a variety of individual audiences.
