London Sinfonietta’s award-winning series Turning Points explores the boundaries between sound and music, with live performance in dialogue with electronics, delving into early 20th century innovations alongside those of today. In this special three-part evening, a pre-concert event explores AI in composition, while a late night session in Hall Two presents spatialised versions of classic electro-acoustic works in Soundscape.

This performance will last approximately 1 hour 30 minutes, including an interval.

Please note: There are a further 2 events programmed as part of this special evening – a free pre-concert event and a post-concert Soundscape experience.  The pre-concert and post-concert events are free to ticket holders of the Turning Points: Sound Unwrapped concert.

Hall Two 6.30pm pre-concert event *

Navigating the Dawn of AI

Eduardo Miranda Qubism

The London Sinfonietta explores the complex and exciting relationship between Artificial Intelligence and electronic music by composer and Professor in Computer Music, Eduardo Miranda. Miranda is a leading musical innovator whose recent projects delve into the field of human-machine interfaces, where brain waves will replace keyboards and voice commands. Tonight’s un-ticketed pre-concert event will feature Qubism, a new piece by Miranda, which traverses the advent of AI and pushes music beyond conventional bounds.

Hall One 9.15pm – Post-concert Event *

Late Night Tapes

Karlheinz Stockhausen – Gesang der Jünglinge
Edgard Varèse –  Poème électronique

Karlheinz Stockhausen’s Gesang der Jünglinge, arguably the first real masterpiece of electronic music, and Edgard Varèse’s Poème électronique, scattered with sounds not usually considered ‘musical’ to create a sense of liberation between sounds. These classic tape pieces will be reimagined using Kings Place’s brand new cutting-edge spatialisation systems and followed by a new electro-acoustic work.

One ticket for Turning Points: Sound Unwrapped covers all events.

*Limited capacity event – entry is first come first served.
