New Digital Life for Eight Songs for a Mad King by Sir Peter Maxwell Davies
Psappha Ensemble has been commissioned by The Space, the new digital, arts service developed by Arts Council England in partnership with the BBC, that aims to help transform the way people connect with, and experience, arts and culture.
Using state of the art gaming technologies Psappha has developed, in collaboration with composer Sir Peter Maxwell Davies and the University of Salford, a new way to experience and explore Davies's iconic work, Eight Songs for a Mad King.

Runaway Cuban slave tells his gripping true-life story. A unique musical experience of latin rhythms fused with cutting edge new music.
Esteban Montejo grew up on a sugar plantation, fought his overseers, escaped, took part in the war of liberation, observed the commercialisation of Cuban society, and was still alive - at the age of 104 - when Castro came to power.
