Wojciech Rusin – 'Syphon' album launch + Jo Hellier + Otto Willberg performs Hanne Darboven's 'Opus 17A'

£12 £10 Advance £6 MEMBERS

'Syphon' album launch, released on AD 93. With Jo Hellier.

Syphon is the second instalment of an ‘alchemical’ trilogy which started with The Funnel on Akashic records. The record consists of speculative medieval and renaissance music, imagined composed in the future, where it is reconstructed from the ashes of the past, via incomplete fragments.

"In a future where the old semantic systems don’t apply anymore, what we are left with is some kind of delirium."

The album features 3D printed instruments, multilayered bagpipe chanters, double recorders and other hybrids.
With additional voices of soprano Eden Girma and Emmy Broughton.

To open the event, bassist Otto Willberg will perform Hanne Darboven's 'Opus 17A'.
