Live from London: VOCES8 + London Contemporary Orchestra

Streamed concert:

Two of London’s most innovative musical organisations come together to present Colliding Worlds, in which old meets new and the natural world meets the challenges of the 20th Century. The London Contemporary Orchestra performs one of Philip Glass’s most loved masterpieces, Glassworks. Glass’s Vessels, from the cult movie Koyaanisqatsi (meaning “life out of balance”) will be performed by VOCES8 and Apollo5 who also sing the world premiere of a new commission by Russian/British/Ghanaian composer and producer Afrodeutsche. The concert will include an arrangement by Robert Ames of Ascent, composed by the Oscar winning Hildur Guðnadóttir, from VOCES8’s upcoming new album, Infinity.

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.
