Janacek - Quartet no. 2 ‘Intimate Letters’

Crumb - Black Angels

Harry Whalley - live real-time composition with overhead projector

Come and join us for an unsettling Halloween at London's coolest creative space 'Iklectik', near Waterloo. Janacek's intense, passion-crazed, 'Intimate Letters' is followed by Crumb's still-fresh masterpiece for electric string quartet from 1971, 'Black Angels'. There will be Tam-tams, there will be tuned wine glasses, there will be devil-music. And after all that, maestro Harry Whalley will put his board marker to the acetate for some high-octane real-time quartet composition at the overhead projector (and from then on nobody can tell you what will happen...)
