UNION CHAPEL PRESENTS MARGINALISED
Four very special performances take place in the Union Chapel in support of the Margins Project, an in-house charity for people who are homeless or in crisis in London.
Max Richter performing from 'From The Art of Mirrors'
Composer, musician and producer Max Richter has collaborated with Future Sound of London and Roni Size, produced the seminal Lookaftering for Vashti Bunyan and released three solo albums of his own, all preceded by a decade of work as a member of the noted contemporary classical ensemble Piano Circus. For Marginalised and to coincide with the re-release of Memoryhouse (fat cat), Richter will be joined by an ensemble to perform works from his album Songs From Before, alongside the London premiere of From the Art of Mirrors; a fusion of music and film by Max Richter and avant garde UK film-maker Derek Jarman. Commissioned by fuseleeds06, From The Art of Mirrors features a new score by Richter performed to rarely seen footage from the Derek Jarman Super8 film archive, performed by the Max Richter Ensemble.
Gamelan group Sekar Enggal will open the evening with gamelan degung, music from Sunda, the highland region of West Java, Indonesia.
Other concerts in this series include:
Mon 19 Oct: Gavin Bryars Ensemble
Thurs 22 Oct: The music of Vernon Elliot (a tribute to the world of Oliver Postgate)
Sat 24 Oct: The Michael Nyman Band feat. David McAlmont
