Actress Teams With London Contemporary Orchestra For Barbican Show

The Werk Discs founder will be joined by the LCO next month for a one-off performance.

Commissioned and curated by Boiler Room, February 10 will see Actress – real name Darren Cunningham – collaborate with the London Contemporary Orchestra for a special one off show at the Barbican. The live performance will see the producer debut new material alongside the LCO, as well as arrangements of his previous work.

Cunningham’s extensive back catalogue has seen him release previous albums on UK labels Honest Jon’s, Ninja Tune and his own Werk Discs label. Having earned the reputation as one of the most eccentric voices of contemporary Electronic music, the Barbican have said the producer will be using the Orchestra as “a new instrument, matching his electronic loops with precise manipulation of their acoustic instruments.” The show will be broadcast live by both Boiler Room and NTS.

Actress and the London Contemporary Orchestra come to the Barbican Centre, 10 February. More info and tickets can be found here.
