Fwd: New London Orchestra newsletter - 10 years of Nonclassical

NONCLASSICAL @ Bloc. Autumn Street // Saturday 15.11.14 // 10pm
All-night party with Nathan Fake, Multi-Story Orchestra and Klavikon
Don't miss our uniquely curated all-nighter with headliner Nathan Fake performing alongside soloists from Multi-Story Orchestra, Klavikon with his unique take on prepared piano, John Richards and Dirty Electronics Orchestra present the world premiere of Mute Synth II and Tom Richards performs an improvised electronics set, plus Gabriel Prokofiev's Strange Blooms and very best Nonclassical DJs. 


Nathan Fake has built a seriously acclaimed reputation in the electronica world - his immersive live shows move between complex rhythmic exercises and liminal harmonic euphoria. For Nonclassical Bloc. we're really excited to announce he'll be performing alongside Multi-Story Orchestra, with several of his tracks arranged exclusively for the event, making this performance a not to be missed culture-clash of contemporary classical and electronic genius.
Soloists from Multi-Story Orchestra will also play Grisey’s Periodes, Tansy Davies’ Neon as well as a special performance with John Matthias and Nick Ryan, playing their seminal composition Cortical Songs.
in his first major London performance, Klavikon will reimagine ‘electronic’ music without the use of conventional processes - no loops, no laptops, no sequencers. Pianist Leon Michener will present a unique system of amplified prepared piano, using his own inventions and found objects to augment the keyboard. The result induces trance-like states in its uncompromisingly minimal rhythmic and sonic progressions. Everyone should experience this amazing performer live!
John Richards and Dirty Electronics Ensemble present the first outing of the Mute Synth II and Drone Works for Ribbon and Strings and Tom Richards will give a heavily improvised electronic performance with Steph Horak and Sam Swift-Glasman on vocals, and Áine O'Dwyer playing the harp, bringing an acoustic element to the performance, which Tom manipulates live to produce a fluid and ever-changing soundscape. 
Gabriel Prokofiev will perform Strange Blooms an electroacoustic extreme-remix of a Baroque chaconne PLUS Nonclassical DJs throughout the night.
