|Chloé van Soeterstède||conductor|
|Principal Players of Aurora Orchestra|
In this late-night Lock-In, Aurora shines the spotlight on the vibrant, bold, and original music of Anna Meredith, one of the most distinctive voices in British music today. Featuring electronics, amplification, and visuals, the night celebrates Meredith’s irresistible, kaleidoscopic sound that shimmers through the worlds of contemporary classical, art pop, electronica and experimental rock. Expect an eclectic and intriguing set of music, where you’ll experience the bassoon as a ‘1980s guitar-god’, the dance mat as a percussive instrument, chamber ensemble music with live drawing, and two drum kits pulsating like a relentless techno track gone haywire.
