Kasper T. Toeplitz Agitation / Stagnation UK Premiere
Lou Reed Metal Machine Music UK Premiere

Two ensembles with radically distinct musical approaches join forces to present their interpretation of Lou Reed’s avant-garde classic Metal Machine Music. Scored for strings, horns and percussion, this hybrid crossing of two traditions offers a new way to experience Reed’s notorious recording, accompanied by a new work from French/Polish composer Kasper T. Toeplitz. Expect a brutal sonic assault on the senses and an unforgettable foray into controlled chaos.

Produced by hcmf// supported by Diaphonique, Franco-British fund for Contemporary Music; also supported by Goethe-Institut London
