Turning Points: Organised Sound
The London Sinfonietta explores the boundary between sound and music in this fascinating programme, delving into the earliest innovations by twentieth-century composers using tape to manipulate sound, and comparing these with their modern-day counterparts using electronics and even artificial intelligence as compositional devices.
This concert is part of the London Sinfonietta’s Sound Unwrapped, an award-winning concert series at Kings Place which explores manipulated sound in music. It is preceded by a pre-concert performance and talk about Artificial Intelligence in music and followed by a late-night performance of electronic tape pieces.
