Internationally acclaimed percussionist Joby Burgess brings us Powerplant, an inspiring collaboration with sound designer Matthew Fairclough and filmmaker Kathy Hinde. In a lavish audio feast the worlds of minimalism and electronica collide as Powerplant present Steve Reich’s recently revitalized My Name Is and the landmark collaboration with composer Gabriel Prokofiev Import/Export - suite for global junk. Music by Graham Fitkin, Conlon Nancarrow and Max de Wardener is taken from Powerplant’s current album 24 Lies Per Second - heavy on live sampling, with traces of ex-presidents, Franz Schubert and Michael Haneke.
This performance is held in the Nuffield Theatre
