Clark with the London Contemporary Orchestra

Barbican Hall, Silk St, London EC2Y 8DS

Join influential electronic musician Clark as he performs his latest record Playground In A Lake alongside the London Contemporary Orchestra – live from the Barbican Hall, or at home via live stream.

Clark’s latest record sees him creating an ethereal and atmospheric soundtrack for the post-apocalypse: eerie, quietly devastating lullabies fused with expansive string arrangements. Here he has abandoned programmed beats for the ambient contemporary-classical: an elegant, filmic and otherworldly soundscape of piano, strings and intense synths.

This evening’s performance sees live orchestration from the London Contemporary Orchestra, playing work from Playground In A Lake and recent soundtrack albums.

Purcell Sessions: Coby Sey X LCO

Belvedere Rd,
London SE1 8XX,
United Kingdom

After 18 months behind The Purcell Room reopens its doors by launching a brand new artistic strand, Purcell Sessions. Set to feature some of the most talked-about cultural moments of the year ahead, from audiovisual installations to new collaborations and commissions and cross-genre concepts by allowing artists to push the new ground with bold contemporary approaches.

Coby Sey along with the London Contemporary Orchestra brings a new angle to his gruff, haunting sounds and introspective lyrics. His sound is a powerful new addition to the UK’s contemporary music scene. Whities 010: Transport for Lewisham laid down a hazy mix of live instrumentation and electronic-based productions, overlaid by spoken vocals, underscored by muddy beats.

He also hosts a regular slot on NTS which offers a portal into his appealingly murky musical world.
