Two musicians follow a secret list of performance instructions. Each selects different pieces from piles of rubbish at their feet, and uses them to create sounds which are sampled live and replayed through electronics. Layer upon layer of the sampled sound is mixed with their live performance on instruments. The result: an immersive and ultimately overwhelming soundscape which confronts the audience with the uncomfortable truth about our disposable culture.

Producer, writer and pioneering electronic musician Matthew Herbert’s London Sinfonietta commission more more more was first performed in the Hayward Gallery in 2018 in response to Andreas Gursky’s Untitled XIII (2002) – an unnerving photograph of a landfill site in Chimalhuacán, Mexico City. more more more will be performed from the contents of rubbish bins collected near Kings Place. This fascinating sonic work offers a unique experience of Gursky’s work, capturing the rhythm, colour and complexity of his photographs in music.

Alongside will be a new piece by Matthew Herbert commissioned for the 200th anniversary of the discovery of Antarctica. Co-created with young people from our Sound Out partners, the piece will use the history, scientific research and even objects from Antarctica as stimulus for developing a work which expresses their responses to the climate emergency.
