The Virus Within: Hearing HIV

The Virus Within: Hearing HIV is a new three-movement work ensemble and electronics that musically explores HIV replication processes and how innovative ‘Shock and Kill’ treatments might provide a cure for HIV. Expect disjointed grooves, whistles and duck calls, complex systematic musical processes developed from biological principles, whimsical chords, sirens, gnarly electronics and cutting edge science…!

Funded by the Medical Research Council and presented in a lecture-recital format The Virus Within: Hearing HIV is the outcome of extensive collaboration between British Composer Award 2017 nominated composer Benjamin Oliver (University of Southampton), virologist Chad Swanson (King’s College London) and Workers Union Ensemble.
