Immerse yourself in Europe’s freshest electroacoustic sounds performed alongside music by Bernard Parmegiani, a composer who blazed a trail through the twentieth-century French scene.

The Main Event includes the world premieres of new European works from Cezary Duchnowski, Jexper Holmen and rising star on the Polish music scene, Agata Zubel, whose work Shades of Ice is inspired by the geography of Icelandic glaciers. These world premieres will be put into the context of electroacoustic traditions with the music of Bernard Parmegiani, whose artistic output includes explorations at the boundaries of technology and jazz improvisation.

Our free Take Note: Pre-concert event at 7.00pm features broadcaster Robert Worby and composers from tonight's concert discussing and asking two questions:
- What are the musical differences between Eastern and Western Europe?
- Does the approach to electroacoustic music differ?

At 10.00pm take advantage of our free Late Lounge, an opportunity to listen to taped music from Bernard Parmegiani and Åke Palmerud in a laid-back, chilled out atmosphere.

Agata Zubel’s Shades of Ice and Cezary Duchnowski’s 151, 242, 333 were commissioned by the London Sinfonietta with support from the Adam Mickiewicz Institute as part of the Polska Music programme.
