BYRON WALLEN'S FOUR CORNERS

Byron Wallen has lived in Woolwich, South East London, for nearly 20 years. He was commissioned by PRS For Music Foundation to compose a suite of music celebrating his chosen home town. Reflecting on Woolwich’s vibrancy, multiculturism and lively community spirit, the suite is a portrait of a once prominent part of London in a time of transformational promise.



Byron’s work draws inspiration from contemporary and indigenous cultures. His passionate musical knowledge and his fascination with the human spirit is evident in this new music which is breath- taking in its excitement and depth.



Here's a video of Four Corners in action.
