Riot Ensemble: Spin

Things to do in the Belly of a Whale

Jagoda Szymytka Sky-Me, Type Me
Alec Hall Spin
Joseph Bates Sparrow

Riot Ensemble brings their characteristic elan and irreverence to a punchy opening programme which launches our exploration of relationships since the pandemic.


Here, Jagoda Szmytka sonifies the experience of communication through Skype; while Alec Hall takes us on a deep-dive into the cult-fitness world of Peloton, which exploded over the past year.

As part of their ReNEW residency at Kings Place, Riot Ensemble curates a day-long festival which asks questions about how the past two years have impacted, expanded and collapsed relationships between human beings. Stretching from Riot’s 2020 Call for Scores winner Alec Hall’s deep-dive into the cult-fitness world of Peloton (Spin) toward lingering (or are they fast approaching?) questions of immigration, togetherness and ’the other’ in a silent film score to Nosferatu. Emphasising their commitment to a truly international vision of new music, Riot has invited two ensembles – Italy’s L’Arsenale and the USA’s Hub New Music - to make their UK debuts.
