'Substance - In Remembrance of Tony Wilson' was a

special event at Manchester International Festival

2017 celebrating Tony and his cultural influence on

the 10th anniversary of his passing. Joe was

commissioned to write a new piece by the festival

and Hull City Of Culture. Blindness & Light, for piano

and strings, was performed by Manchester Camerata

and Dave Maric on piano. The program also

included short works by John Metcalfe & Malcolm

Fitkin from the Factory Classical catalogue, and a

performance of St Anthony with Mike Garry.

Program notes: "I once heard that Tony Wilson

always dreamt of hearing an orchestral version of

Atmosphere. So I've composed this new work for

piano and strings and limited myself to score using

only the notes contained in the original composition.

It's an original work but with an intentional sonic

resonance throughout."
