Join us for the May edition of our Monthly Nights at The Victoria with pianist Yshani Perinpanayagam and drummer Sean Noonan. Yshani's set - "Piano Play" - will feature a world premiere by Cheryl Frances-Hoad for piano and Commodore 64, and a London premiere of Ben Oliver's '147' (synchronised to a projected video of Ronnie O'Sullivan's record breaking 147 break in 1997), whilst Sean will be performing music from his Bruised by Noon project.
Following on from the success of previous large scales events including ‘Pioneers of Percussion’ and ‘Pioneers of Electronics’, Nonclassical presents ‘Rise of the Machines’.
The centrepiece of the project is an orchestral club night London - developed in collaboration with Southbank Sinfonia - at Ambika P3 (University of Westminster), an underground space in central London. The concert programme includes works that explore the mechanical in orchestral music from different perspectives, culminating in the UK premiere of Gabriel Prokofiev’s Concerto for Turntables, Percussion, Trumpet and Orchestra.
Our April Monthly Night at The Victoria (Dalston) also adopts the theme of Nonclassical's new mini-series, 'Rise of the Machines'.
On Thursday 10 March Nonclassical bring their pioneering club night to Leeds' Key Club as part of Leeds College of Music 50th anniversary celebrations.
The night will feature Klavikon's unique re-imagined electronic music, as well as Nonclassical DJs. Tickets and more information available here.
