Letty is currently an Artist-in-Residence at Snape Maltings in Suffolk, where she is developing her project Ancient Horns based around Etruscan and Ancient Greek instruments from the late Iron Age.
These instruments include Karnyx, Lituus, Cornu and Salpinx and her project aims to give these ancient horns new voices in a modern-day context. Through collaborations with instrument-builder and historical expert Dr Peter Holmes, musicians Alice Zawadzki, Ed Ashby and Luke Christie and working with filmmaker John Fensom, Letty is in the process of developing a documentary film for the Festival of New at Snape Maltings.

Letty was first commissioned to write for these fantastic instruments by PLAYLIST in 2019, where she performed her own site-specific composition Cornicen / The Hornblower in the atmospheric settings of the medieval Gods House Tower building in Southampton.
