David Ward’s e-mails from Palestine* was specially written for the multi-talents of Emily White on Sackbut, Trombone, Violin, Vocals and Percussion with Steve Bingham on Violin, Electric Violin and Electric Bass Violin (with live loops) and Percussion. The texts are fragments of e-mails David Ward received in 2007–2008 from Scottish artist Jane Frere when she was working with young Palestinians. Steve Bingham will also perform Bach’s D minor partita for solo violin.  Steve and Emily will also play adaptations for sackbut and electric violin drones of music by Hildegard of Bingen, and a number of short pieces to be specially written by local young people.
