Joby Talbot is busy working on a new piece for choreographer Wayne McGregor and the Paris Opera Ballet. Talbot is collaborating with LA based electronica artist Deru to create an electronic score for the new work entitled Genus. Talbot composed music for the Duke String Quartet, violinist Louis Fuller and members of Nigel Short’s choir Tenebrae. These elements have been recorded and now Talbot and Deru are working on the final mix at Deru’s studio in Los Angeles. The premiere takes place on October 26 with ten subsequent performances through to early November.
