JON HOPKINS TO PERFORM ALONGSIDE BRIAN ENO IN BRIGHTON THIS SUNDAY 9TH MAY
Jon Hopkins | 04/05/10
This is Pure Scenius!
Brighton Festival Exclusive
Brian Eno, Karl Hyde, Jon Hopkins, Leo Abrhams, the Necks
Genius is individual, scenius is communal. Here seven individuals come together to imagine new forms of music, realised over three consecutive performances. This experiment had its only other outing last year as part of Luminous at the Sydney Opera House. In This is Pure Scenius!, Brian Eno will be joined on stage by Karl Hyde, guitarist Leo Abrahams, synthesist Jon Hopkins as well as Tony Buck, Lloyd Swanton and Chris Abrahams who comprise Australian improvisation masters, The Necks.
Each concert picks up where the preceding one left off. Starting from a predetermined sequence of events, each performance allows the development of ideas across three concerts - sometimes quite similar, sometimes worlds apart.
Like a laboratory conducting an undisclosed experiment, This is Pure Scenius! is a combustible, must-see mix of intellect, ideas and musical innovation.
Performance 1 commences at 4pm, there is a one hour break between each performance with Performance 2 commencing at 6.30pm and Performance 3 at 9pm.
Tickets for each performance are £18, £22
There is a Limited number of tickets available for all three performances priced at £55, these are availble to purchase by phone on 01273 709709
