The Radical Sound Of Many at the Barbican

LISTEN: Audio flyer for The Radical Sound Of Many

On Saturday 16th March 2019 we are proud to part part of the Barbican’s Tune in to Access, a celebratory free day of performances and participation exploring accessibility, technology and the arts.

5 commission premieres

Join us for The Radical Sound of Many, a showcase of brand new commissions as five Disabled musicians tear up the rule book and redefine notions of audience, performer and live music.

In this experimental series of world premieres, the Barbican’s public spaces will be transformed into ad-hoc studios and stages as we invite audiences to mould, mash up and be a part of the music making experience.

Expect unexpected things; take a trip through Transylvania or interface with a humanoid from 2049 as we celebrate the artists and work from our Emergent: A music legacy and PRS Foundation Talent Development Partner programmes.

“We are thrilled to be working with the Barbican to showcase new music by Disabled artists. Covering a real range of genres, instruments, tech and performance styles, these emerging and established artists are radically rethinking the relationship between musicians and their audiences.
Daryl Beeton, Artistic Programme Leader, Drake Music
