London Contemporary Music Festival: The Japanese Extreme

Celebrating composers that go against the grain

"The capital's most adventurous and ambitious festival of new music."

- The Guardian
The London Contemporary Music Festival is back for a second year. Tonight, they're exploring the history of Japanese musical aesthetics. A Japanese Noh troupe perform excerpts from plays, and solo percussionist Karlheinz Stockhausen’s piece is played out on a wooden door. Then music pioneer Pain Jerk and sound artist Russell Haswell perform a live Japanese Noise set, which takes in a variety of sounds to form unique compositions. General admission.
