The Royal Northern College of Music and the FutureEverything Festival have teamed up to present two evenings of electronic music in a classical concert atmosphere this weekend, welcoming artists from the old school and new. Friday 28th will see the veteran sound architect Robert Henke takes to the stage with his audiovisual performance Lumiere; expect ethereal lights and lasers conducted by mathematical data inputs, translated into waves of sound which complement the ebb and flow of its visual counterpart.
On Saturday 29th the theatre opens its doors to an eclectic mix of producers headed by rising star Evian Christ, who is set to present his music live for the first time in such a setting. Moving from almost complete anonymity on YouTube to contributing to Kanye West’s Yeezus, not to mention the recent release of his Waterfall EP, Evian Christ has proven to be one to watch. And Saturday will give you an opportunity to do just that.
