Colin Stetson : Hereditary
Address: Barbican Centre,
1 Silk Street
Canadian-American Saxophonist Colin Stetson is joined by the London Contemporary Orchestra to perform live selections from his soundtrack to the A24 horror film masterpiece, Hereditary.
A trailblazer in his field, since the early years of the 21st Century Stetson has gained a reputation as an exceptional musician. Having collaborated with the likes of Lou Reed, LCD Soundsystem, The National, Chemical Brothers and Bon Iver, Stetson is known for assertive, powerhouse performances on the saxophone – chiefly bass and alto, but also soprano, tenor and baritone, he has developed signature characteristics enhanced by various arrangements, instrumentations, and orchestral elements.
Stetson makes his Hall debut alongside theLondon Contemporary Orchestra to perform sections from his compositional album for Ari Aster’s gory movie Hereditary, conducted by Robert Ames.
This performance does not include a screening of the film but will be accompanied by a special light show featuring stills from each of the suites of the score.
