Steve Reich to perform Radiohead inspired piece
According to reports legendary minimalist composer Steve Reich will premiere a new piece next year at London's Southbank Centre, based on two Radiohead songs.
The new work, entitled Radiohead Rewrite, will be based on ‘Everything in its Right Place’, from Radiohead’s classic 2000 release, Kid A, as well as ‘Jigsaw Falling Into Place’ from In Rainbows.
The piece - which came about after Reich met the band at a music festival in Poland last year - will premier on March 5th 2013 and will be performed by 13 musicians from the London Sinfonietta.
In just a few weeks, The 405 will be representing ourselves at London’s Bloc Weekend. The festival has an incredibly eclectic line up ranging from hip-hop to minimal techno to noise rock, yet there are shared themes of experimentalism, high levels of musical integrity and generally dark artistry throughout most of the programmed acts. Bloc also puts a strong emphasis on the visual aesthetics involved in production of live music, which sets them aside from this summer’s competition. [read more]
