‘Every aesthetic trace, every footprint of an object, sparkles with absence. Sensual things are elegies to the disappearance of objects.’ Realist Magic, Timothy Morton


This is the first in Riot Ensemble’s ReNEW series at Kings Place, bringing the cream of international contemporary music on to the Hall One stage.

Liza Lim’s Extinction Events and Dawn Choruses aspire to ‘make a music out of relics of the past’, which here range from Janacek to the last-ever heard mating call of the now-extinct Kauai O’o bird. Aaron Holloway-Nahum’s Like a Memory of Birds (ii) is also about degradation and loss, filtering a familiar melodic line through an alien soundscape until it disintegrates and disappears. Meanwhile, Ctrl by Laurence Osborn, which features Sarah Dacey’s soprano filtered through an auto-tune pedal, looks squarely at the question of (toxic) masculinity as seen in the writings of Grayson Perry.
