Propellor: Flight Patterns

Propellor: Flight Patterns


Lancaster Arts welcomes Propellor back to the Nuffield Theatre for a reimagining of the music from their acclaimed podcast into a concert with food!

Three of the UK’s most innovative contemporary instrumentalists invite you on a flight of the imagination, weaving ancient, classical, contemporary and improvised music into a soundscape of deep time, ecology and birds. The Nuffield Theatre will be transformed into an intimate setting for food, deep listening and conversation.

During the concert, audiences will be invited to try tasty treats as part of the musical experience as the musicians blur the boundaries between the theatre and foyer.

Formed in 2017, Propellor are a daring cross-genre ensemble of multi-instrumentalists from a variety of musical backgrounds, mapping their collective experience of the natural world.

Featuring music from: 

Olivier Messiaen 
Pauline Oliveros 
Hildegard von Bingen 
Philip Glass 
Gaelic Psalms 

Jack McNeill, Clarinet/ Bass Clarinet
Delia Stevens, Percussion
Kay Stephen, Viola

“An ensemble who cross the worlds of folk, classical, electronic and experimental music. It twists and turns through different sound worlds.”
Aidan O'Rourke (LAU)

“a podcast that pushes the boundaries of sound-speech-music collaboration, fusing beauty, passion and politics into a fascinating, immersive exploration of birds and people.”
Robert Macfarlane
