Edinburgh Festival announces new Machover commission

No rest for the weary! This just in from the Edinburgh Festival:

A crowd sourced orchestral work by boundary breaker Tod Machover is just one of the many highlights of this year’s Edinburgh International Festival programme. Set over three weeks this August, the EIF’s line-up includes an homage to Allen Ginsberg with Philip Glass and Patti Smith; a new commission from experimental artist Laurie Anderson; a tribute to Frank Zappa; and a return to the festival for the Wooster Group with the company’s inspired (re)take of Hamlet, complete with Richard Burton film footage.

Read all about it at the Edinburgh Festival Guide. Sounds like an exciting line-up!!  Programme for the Edinburgh International Festival 2013 puts artists and technology centre-stage
