A benefit concert for Resonance as part of its Annual Fundraiser. The world’s best radio station is trying to raise money to equip and pay for a new studio space to allow it to continue beyond this, its remarkable 21st year!
A very rare London performance by the enigmatic Newcastle-based pioneers of post-industrial electro-acoustic ambient music, whose numerous live and recorded works of "unreserved beauty" (The Wire) over 40 years have given them the status of "the ultimate cult electronic band" (Ambient Music Guide).
Few musicians can claim to have made such a mark on the British music scene over the last thirty years. As well as co-founding the influential Stereolab, Laetitia Sadier has also forged a remarkable solo career as a songwriter and has collaborated with the likes of Mouse On Mars, Atlas Sound, The High Llamas, Blur and Common.
Kate Carr is a London-based composer and field recordist whose work uses sound to explore the spaces we create together. She is particularly interested in shared public spaces, and the ways we deploy sound to connect, occupy, immerse and remove ourselves from locations, events and each other. Her live work is centred on objects, chance events and textures.
Carr also runs the label Flaming Pines and is a member (with Iain Chambers) of Rubbish Music.
